Martin O’Malley on The Daily Show

He was pretty good in stating his case for why he should be president. He was clear and articulate in stating his vision for what he wanted to achieve. He is a candidate that I could see myself voting for enthusiastically. His main weakness was that while mayor of Baltimore, he was swept up in the tough-on-crime, lock-up-everyone mentality that was prevalent at the time and which we now realize was far too harsh.

    I do hope he brings up debate issues with sustainability and environmentalism to the national stage. I’m not really sure why someone would vote for him over Bernie Sanders though.

    I don’t see him as president. And he is too direct for vice.

    I’m thinking, with those sentiments about gun control and banking, he might be prime material for attorney general.
