Many have the feeling that Hillary Clinton is inevitably the Democratic Party`s candidate for the presidential election of 2016. But we should not precipitate about that, according to former Maryland governor, Martin O’Malley. Although Hillary Clinton is, at the present, favorite for the democratic frontrunner position, O`Malley does not see things this way.
“Most years there is the inevitable frontrunner. And that inevitable frontrunner is inevitable right up until he or she is no longer inevitable,”
he said, during the Morning Joe program on MSNBC.
Hillary Clinton is implicated in a controversy her using a private e-mail account, while in the position of secretary of state, which she has executed for a period of four years. She offered a press conference on Tuesday, but it did not help to quench the agitation. So it seems that Martin O`Malley timed his prick very wisely.
On March 12, a New York Times report shows that the Democratic Party`s congressmen see Hillary Clinton as the perfect candidate for the 2016 presidential race. “She is simply too big to fail”, they said.
Clinton already has a great reputation, and is considered to be the most important woman in American politics. In the polls on Democratic preferences for the 2016 election candidate, she has the highest scores. Although Hillary Clinton may feel certain about the outcome of the Democratic Party`s selection, Martin O`Malley disagrees.
He stated that if he entered the race, a consolation prize wouldn`t do. He wouldn`t be satisfied with a cabinet post or vice presidency.
“I would be running not only to win but to govern well, to make the case to the people of the country there are better choices we can make together that will make wages go up and to make college more affordable for our kids again,”
O`Malley said on this matter.
He added that he expects an elaborated discussion amongst Democrats in the time of the campaign.
On the other hand, O`Malley didn`t rush to make accusations and didn`t make use of any type of political demagogy. He refused to comment on the e-mail scandal in which Hillary Clinton is embroiled and added that he will make his political intentions public this spring.
O`Malley also didn`t announce any plan to replace Maryland`s Senator Barbara Mikulski, who said she wouldn`t run for re-election next year.
An NBC survey reveals that Hillary Clinton has 86 per cent support, as Martin O`Malley has only 11 per cent.
