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.

WBAL radio show host Ron Smith doesn't hesitate when asked if anything has changed since he announced he has Stage Four pancreatic cancer and will no longer undergo chemotherapy. "I'm facing death in a very short time," says Smith, 69. "So what becomes supreme in importance is love, friendships, relationships. It's so clear: My family has grown closer together - one to the other. It's been a valuable experience - one I'd rather not have immediately gone to - but you've got to die sometime.

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.

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."

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?"

Now we're talking. "Our city has been in crisis for decades," Baltimore's new archbishop, Edwin O'Brien, said shortly after his installation yesterday. From using "our" in reference to his new city, to bluntly noting the drugs, violence and poverty that beset it, O'Brien sent off signals as loud and clear as the pealing church bells that ended his official induction as Baltimore's 15th Roman Catholic archbishop: This was a church leader who would not retreat behind the cathedral doors but would emerge to mix it up a bit. Good for him. If it's not too sacrilegious, let me say to his Excellency, "Welcome to Baltimore, hon."

The top two Democrats in the U.S. Senate race were gentlemanly to the point of boring. Now one of them is gentlemanly to the point of startling. As in, "Ben's a friend" and "I think Mike Steele's a great guy." As in, "I wish them both well." That's what Kweisi Mfume told me yesterday, when he also mentioned that he wasn't conceding the race to Ben Cardin. He wouldn't say who - if anyone - he'd endorse if he still falls short after all the ballots are counted. "I'm going to have something to say about that," was his only answer.
