Most open their doors a bit confused, even quizzical. For Catherine Benton, 85, the tall man standing on her driveway one recent afternoon was recognizable as the "medical guy" from Baltimore. But like many Anne Arundel voters in the sprawling 3rd Congressional District, the details of the race are not so clear. "I may vote for Beilencome. Am I saying that right?" she asks, moments after Dr. Peter L. Beilenson, one of the many contenders for the Democratic nomination, leaves her driveway.

Is Ben Cardin looking toward Annapolis yet again?The Democratic congressman from the 3rd District has commissioned polls presumably to test his potential strength in a 1994 race for governor. No other candidate would bring to the contest more experience or greater respect among his peers. And, some would say, less electronic sex appeal.As a state legislator who served two terms as House speaker, Mr. Cardin was the Assembly's pre-eminent fiscal expert, a consensus builder of consummate skill who made legislators feel a part of things even when they were not.As a practitioner of the charismatic arts, on the other hand, he was less than masterful.

William Donald Schaefer turned 85 yesterday, and he celebrated at the main Pratt Library with hundreds of friends and cake. A lot of cakes, actually. Eight-five of them. That's enough cake to keep a team of six bakers whipping and folding for a day, and sink six decorators up to their elbows in buttercreams, cream cheese frosting and chocolate drizzle for two and a half more. Lots of times at big events like weddings, there's one fancy cake for show - and a plain sheet cake back in the kitchen.

Nobody asked me, but I think it's pathetic that Bobby Prigel's well-to-do neighbors and their lawyer in the Long Green Valley persist in trying to keep him from opening an organic creamery on his farm because they think the barn-like building will spoil their view. What a waste of time and money - and bad feelings for no good reason. Prigel has a great idea - a local, fourth-generation family farmer doing local farming, and in an organic, earth-friendly way - and he ought to be supported.

REP. Benjamin Cardin's answer to the invisible forces that are coaxing him to run for governor is this: Flattery will get you nowhere.Oh, the 3rd District Democrat would like to be governor, all right. But not this time around. According to his astrological chart, the planets aren't properly aligned and the moon's out of position. Maybe some other year. After all, Mr. Cardin only turned 50 last week.What's uppermost on his mind these days is national health care. He's for it full-bore. In fact, he was author of the leading health-care bill in the House of Representatives last year, and many of its components have been incorporated into the health-care package assembled under the guidance of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Havre de Grace. -- The presidential primary election campaign in Maryland brings back a lot of memories of another campaign 16 years ago, and some of them are unsettling to a voter trying hard to make up his mind in the spring of 1992.In 1976, the Democratic powers-that-be let events get away from them, and before they knew it, the little-known Jimmy Carter was well on his way to winning the nomination. Many party big shots hated the prospect. Here in Maryland, Gov. Marvin Mandel went bananas.

Now that Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin has completed his torturous journey to non-candidacy, Maryland Democrats must endure yet another period of waiting and watching to see if someone else dares to challenge Gov. Parris N. Glendening."

One minute you're nobody, an anonymous Irish expat in America, opining on Emerald Isle politics at the dawn of the blog age. Next thing you know, a dozen years zip by, and you're director of a governor's office. And not just any governor, but one fancied far and wide as a Democratic up-and-comer. One whom presidential hopefuls - Hillary Clinton, for instance - might well seek out for help on the campaign trail, just as Bill Clinton helped Martin O'Malley when he was running for governor.

Everybody I know can't believe the news about Andy Barth. He is the longtime television reporter who is now pondering a run for the U.S. Congress. I saw the item in Laura Vozzella's column the other day and immediately called Jack Bowden and Susan White Bowden, who go back to the beginning of all time in Baltimore TV news. "You heard about Barth getting into politics?" I asked. "We did," said Jack Bowden. He and his wife worked alongside Barth at WMAR-TV for about two decades. "What do you think?"

Despite a multimillion-dollar advertising blitz from one challenger and an aggressive grassroots campaign from another, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland remains among the safest incumbents in the nation as he runs for a second term, according to a new poll. Potomac businessman Rob Sobhani, running as an independent, has not cut significantly into Cardin's lead though he has pumped millions of dollars of his own money into the race. He may be helping the Democratic incumbent by siphoning some voters away from Republican challenger Daniel Bongino.
