Notes From the Marty Party

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley may finally be taking the advice of those who have urged him to go tougher on the party front-runner, Hillary Rodham "Bitch I'm Hillary!" Clinton, saying that the e-mail issue engulfing the former Secretary of State is allowing the party to be defined as untrustworthy as Hillary becomes the faith of the party itself.  Marty has been urging that the party have more presidential debates - the first one hasn't even been held yet - to offer Democrats the chance to focus on ideas rather than Mrs., Clinton's e-mail issue.
"Until we start having debates, our party's going to be defined and branded by questions like: What did Secretary Clinton know, when did she know it, and when will the FBI conclude its investigation?  That's not a formula for success in the fall [of 2016]," O'Malley said.
O'Malley, who has been in Minneapolis at the Democratic National Committee's  meeting, renewed his call for more debates, and committee chairman Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) renewed her desire to ignore O'Malley.  Marty's clearly not winning the war against a brain-dead Democratic establishment trying to will Hillary's nomination.  But it's still refreshing to see him starting the fight  Fighting the establishment at all makes for good press, and he needs good press . . . or any press. 
Oh yes, one other thing . . ..  In my post of this past Tuesday, I wrote, "If Hillary is the nominee, well, Marty can always run for the nomination in 2020," suggesting that Hillary would lose in 2016. Silly me.   If Hillary is the nominee, well, Marty can't run for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 2020, because there won't be a Democratic Party then.
