BOSTON -- Like all good political consultants, we begin today by looking at the candidate's background. Our Favorite Daughter may not look 35, old enough to fulfill the constitutional requirement for president of the United States, but she was born in 1959. She's been with the same guy for as long as anyone can remember. He seems like a decent chap who could check his ego at the White House gate and never, ever, do Viagra ads. She has no teen-age children to get into trouble. A definite plus.

Gov. Martin O'Malley visited New Jersey's capital city Friday to campaign for a candidate for governor who is so far behind in the polls that many in the national Democratic Party have all but abandoned her. It's unclear how much he helped state Sen. Barbara Buono in her challenge to Republican Gov. Chris Christie, but O'Malley left having persuaded some of Buono's supporters to watch his political future. "I'm lovin' on your governor," said Betty Young, owner of a beauty shop where O'Malley spoke.

The sign promised a speech that would explore "Government's Role in e-Learning." "The answer is: Government should have no role in e-learning," said presidential candidate Harry Browne. "Now, are there any questions?" No, the Libertarian Party's candidate for president did not give the shortest speech in the history of U.S. politics. His line drew laughs. But as Browne addressed about 150 people gathered yesterday in Baltimore for a conference on using the Internet, he never backed off from his party's vision of a federal government that would be small, smaller, smallest.

Maryland's Republican Party seems to be solidly behind presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, but the party raised some eyebrows today with an email solicitation. The missive advertises an upcoming pig roast. Among expected attendees it lists "our Romeny delegation to Tampa. " "It is simple error," said GOP Executive Director David Ferguson. "Maybe you should find something better to do. " Perhaps he's right. But it is a good thing for the GOP that the presidential race in Maryland won't be decided by write-in.

O'Malley, not Gore, for president Al Gore's new movie, An Inconvenient Truth, is interesting and creative. It is not enough, however, to make him a serious future candidate for president. I served with him in Congress and campaigned for him for vice president and president. I now finally know him well enough to say he should not be the Democratic candidate in 2008 or 2012. My candidate at that time will be Gov. Martin O'Malley of Maryland. Bill D. Burlison Odenton The writer is member of the Anne Arundel County Council.

MEXICO CITY -- More than 100,000 supporters of the losing leftist candidate for president flooded into the capital's historic square yesterday to start a movement they hope will change the constitution. The candidate, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a former Mexico City mayor, narrowly lost the July 2 election to a conservative from President Vicente Fox's party. He has said that there was a broad conspiracy of business leaders, the Fox administration and media barons to rob him of victory.

Maryland's primary is now just two weeks away (with early voting starting this Saturday) and - surprise - ballots cast here might even be relevant to the presidential selection process. On Wednesday, Mitt Romney is scheduled to be the first of the Republican candidates to traipse into the Old Line State to state his case for taking home 37 delegates in the winner-take-all event with appearances at theU.S. Naval Academy and in Arbutus and Frederick. For a state dominated by Democrats, this is a rarity that GOP voters should savor.

Baltimore County's school board named new leaders Tuesday night after a deadlock vote for the vice presidency and a closed-door meeting. Earnest Hines, who was on vacation and had written a letter to the board expressing his interest in becoming president, was unanimously elected to that position. Two members, Meg O'Hare and Edward Parker, were both nominated for the vice presidency; O'Hare received four votes and Parker five votes. Seven votes were needed to win the seat. The 12-member board was down three members whose terms had expired and one member was on vacation.

I was surprised to read in The New York Times that Sen. Hillary Clinton was the "first woman with a real shot at the presidency." I thought that honor had gone to Sen. Elizabeth Dole in 2000. In that year, the Times described Mrs. Dole as "the first woman to become a really serious candidate for president of the United States." Of course, back in 1972, the Seattle Times penned, "Representative Shirley Chisholm today became the first black woman to begin a serious bid for the presidency of the United States."

BOSTON -- Among the endless reasons I will never run for public office is a deep-seated fear of having my wardrobe subject to the fashion police. Excuse me, the fashion shrinks - those media monitors who seek deep meaning in every shoe, sexual clues in every hemline, and psychological insights in every shirt collar. Just imagine the casual summer wardrobe that I am modeling so stylishly at this very moment. What would the fashionbabblers have to say about my well-worn khaki capris? That they display a certain comfort-first sensibility?

A young man with a mop of curly, light-brown hair ambled up my driveway as I sweated over my gardens one Saturday morning. He was covered with stickers, like a toddler who'd behaved at the dentist's office. As he got closer I could see through the sweat in my eyes that the stickers said "Obama." Another sticker on his shirt said his name was "Lars." When he asked if he could have a few minutes of my time, he was as earnest as any of Bobby Kennedy's young army might have been. Lars asked if I had been thinking about the 2008 election and if I would like to learn more about his candidate.

BOSTON -- It's been almost a year since that well-known political pundit, Sharon Stone, explained why Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton couldn't win the presidency. "A woman should be past her sexuality when she runs," intoned Ms. Stone. "Hillary still has sexual power, and I don't think people will accept that." I never figured out whether this was a compliment or an insult to the 59-year-old New York Democrat. Of course, this was only one of innumerable pink grids put over Senator Clinton's campaign.
