WASHINGTON - Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will become the secretary of the Democratic National Committee on Tuesday, giving her a prominent role in national politics. The appointment, which has not been formally announced, will give Rawlings-Blake a voice in the party's national political apparatus at a time when President Barack Obama is beginning his second term and several Democrats - including Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley - are thought to be jockeying for the 2016 nomination.

Officers of the Democratic National Committee generally refrain from endorsing candidates in Democratic Party primaries. But Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the secretary of the DNC, has thrown her support behind Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who is running for governor. In doing so, she passed over Democrats Douglas F. Gansler, Maryland's attorney general, and state Del. Heather R. Mizeur. She also left some people grumbling that someone in her position should have remained neutral.

The Eastern Shore's embattled Democrats, routinely outvoted in one of the redder regions of a very blue state, will have something to cheer about June 3 when Democratic National Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appears at a fundraiser for President Obama's re-election campaign. The Florida congresswoman, one of the party's rising stars, is expected to speak at an  afternoon reception at Carmichael Farm in Queenstown -- deep in the heart of Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Harris' district.

CHARLOTTE -- Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will address the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday at 10 p.m., just as the national networks begin broadcasting live, convention organizers announced late Monday. It is arguably the most important address the governor has given in years and it will be parsed by those speculating about the possibility of O'Malley's own presidential campaign in 2016. In an interview Monday night as he moved between events in Charlotte, O'Malley said he was honored to give "short remarks" at the convention.

Because a union plans to picket a downtown hotel, the Democratic National Committee is moving its fall meeting from Baltimore to Virginia, disappointing local and state leaders who had anticipated the spotlight of a presidential campaign landing briefly on the city. The event would have brought leading candidates to Baltimore between Nov. 29 and Dec. 1 to appeal for support from undecided national committee members -- those party leaders sometimes called "super delegates" because they can vote for whomever they choose at the summer nominating convention.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's growing role in Democratic politics has given a boost to her national profile - and to her frequent-flyer miles. A leader with the Democratic National Committee and the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Rawlings-Blake has visited Panama with Vice President Joe Biden and attended summits in Utah, New York and Louisiana. She stumped for Cory Booker as he ran for Senate in New Jersey and rallied young Democrats in San Antonio. She also went to three conferences in Las Vegas.

What a fiasco we witnessed at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte N.C. this week ("'A we're-all-in-this-together society," Sept. 6). It looked like it was planned by three blind mice. First they were going to have this show of numbers by busing in thousands of Democrats from neighboring states to fill the stadium. While this would not be a true show of Democratic popularity, the DNC was willing to put out the money to do this for propaganda purposes. Then there was to be a huge fireworks display.

The Democrats initially omitted any reference to God in their platform. In defense, a DNC spokesperson explained that some might find God offensive. Oh really! After much bad publicity about giving God the boot, a vote was taken. Even though the voice vote reflected the majority wanted God left out, the DNC allowed God back on their convention bus, but only as a passenger, not the driver. In an earlier interview, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois was asked why the DNC took God out of their party platform, and he replied "Don't accuse the Democrats of being godless.

WASHINGTON - The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson and the Democratic National Committee violated campaign finance law when Jackson used Rainbow/PUSH Coalition funds to travel the country in 2000 drumming up voter registration and staging get-out-the-vote rallies, according to a Federal Election Commission decision released yesterday. Under an agreement with the FEC, Jackson, two of his organizations, Rainbow/PUSH and the Citizenship Education Fund, and the DNC were levied a $200,000 fine. In accepting the fine, they also acknowledged violating federal election regulations by engaging in a campaign travel arrangement that saw Jackson's not-for-profit corporations illegally paying for political trips the DNC was supposed to fund.

WASHINGTON - The new Democratic national chairman, Terry McAuliffe, vowed yesterday to "transform the anger" Democrats feel about losing the presidency into electoral reform and election victories during the next four years. McAuliffe, the party's leading fund-raiser, is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton, who engineered his selection as head of the Democratic National Committee. The move reflected Clinton's continuing political influence as well as the degree to which fund raising has become the main focus of the major parties.

What media outlets and blogs are saying about Gov. Martin O'Malley's speech to the Democratic National Convention. The Baltimore Sun : It was not a very good TV speech, and I suspect it played poorly in many living rooms around the country. The Daily Beast 's Andrew Sullivan: O'Malley improved as he went along. Daily Kos : My boy O'Malley did not have a great night. Can we admit that? ... While positive and on message, O'Malley seemed transparent in his desire to make the speech primarily an introduction for himself to the country.
