    Speculation begins for 2016

    Potential Democratic successors for President Obama currently being mentioned are:
    Ms Hillary Rodham Clinton
    Vice President Joe Biden
    Governor Andrew Cuomo
    And now, Governor Martin O'Malley
    Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, a rising star in Democratic politics, said Wednesday that he is considering making a run for the White House in 2016 and will likely make a decision later this year.

    O'Malley, in Jerusalem on a Mideast tour, said he was still undecided but intends to dedicate "reflection time" on whether to seek the Democratic nomination.

    "I plan for the latter half of this year to dedicate some more thought time - reflection time - to the question of whether or not I would run in 2016," O'Malley, a former mayor of Baltimore, told reporters.

    "The key question in running for any office is having a clear and refined understanding of the shared reality we face," he said. "I arrived at that freedom and that clarity when I ran for mayor and when I ran for governor, and the interior challenge is whether or not I can arrive at that clarity, and that freedom and that sense of responsibility and urgency with regard to making a run in 2016."

    O'Malley, 50, is frequently touted as a potential presidential candidate, along with former Secretary of State and U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He is favored by Democrats who want the party to look to younger candidates, noting that Clinton will turn 69 shortly before Election Day 2016, and Biden will turn 74 soon after.

    President Barack Obama, a Democrat, cannot run because U.S. presidents are limited to two four-year terms.

    O'Malley has successfully promoted a progressive agenda that includes legalizing same-sex marriage, introducing some of the U.S.'s toughest gun control laws, repealing capital punishment, and enabling some students who are not in the country legally to pay in-state tuition, seen as an important part of immigration reform.

    O'Malley is on an eight-day tour of Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories with a delegation of Maryland officials. He is meeting Israel's President Shimon Peres, high-ranking Israeli politicians and the outgoing Palestinian prime minister, Salam Fayyad.

    The tipping point has been reached in American culture. There will not be another Republican President in the foreseeable future.

    Are you thinking of Condoleezza Rice, or Colin Powell? Neither of them would have a chance since they would be viewed by the politically correct media as an Oreo and an Uncle Tom. Democrats will retain the White House indefinitely on the strength of their entitlement programs and socialistic demagoguery.

    The local media has also hinted O'Malley may consider running. I haven't heard anything new about whether he will or not. Though I can see him going through with it. O'Malley has drawn relatively high approval ratings (~ or >50 %) in Maryland. He's made some big accomplishments as governor which include passing gay marriage, limiting expoenetial state university tuition increases, and supporting the DREAM Act. So I think he would draw big support from the Democrats and minorities...

    Ms Hillary Rodham Clinton
    Vice President Joe Biden
    Governor Andrew Cuomo
    And now, Governor Martin O'Malley
    I think the next POTUS will be left of Obama, which isn't easy. However, it's what the people want.

    Ms. Rodham fails this litmus test.

    Biden could be, but he is a buffoon. On the other hand, this didn't stop us from electing Obama twice.

    Cuomo is left wing enough.

    I think the winner is O'Malley.
