Clarification: December 9, 2018

In my November 12 , 2018 appraisal of former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley's presidential prospects , for 2020, "Quo Vadis, Martin?", I wrote this about O'Malley's failure to campaign for  Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ben Jealous: "O'Malley's decision to keep his distance from Jealous, whom he did not back for the Maryland gubernatorial election, reflects badly on the former governor."  I should have said, "O'Malley's decision to keep his distance from Jealous, whom he did not back for the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nomination, reflects badly on the former governor."  I failed to stress that O'Malley had supported Jealous' chief rival for the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nomination, Rushern Baker, in the primary.  I've cleared it up by amending the original post.
