(From the Maryland Politics blog) North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue spilled the news: as expected, Martin O'Malley was picked today to be the next chairman of the Democratic Governors Association. O'Malley is currently emceeing an association lunch at the St. Regis Washington hotel. He spoke briefly, giving a somewhat nationalized version of his stump speech. As DGA chairman, O'Malley now has the opportunity to expand his Rolodex with Democratic donors from other states, deepen relationships with a network of emerging Democratic leaders and recruit new faces to the party.

Officially, House Republicans retreated to Baltimore this week to hash out their legislative agenda: repealing health care reform, cutting government spending and fulfilling the other campaign promises that helped to sweep them into the majority. But they still had to eat, and their first two meals Friday provided much food for thought for the 2012 presidential race. Breakfast served up former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, while lunch was a buffet of GOP governors: Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Rick Perry of Texas and Bob McDonnell of Virginia.

WASHINGTON -- As each side takes inventory in the just-concluded budget war between President Clinton and congressional Republicans, GOP leaders can point to $40 billion in saved tax dollars, a significant reordering of federal budget priorities and a promise extracted from the president to balance the budget in seven years.Then why are Republicans acting so defensively, while the prevailing mood at the White House is one of euphoria?"I'll tell you why," says Democratic campaign consultant Dane Strother.

In an interview on National Public Radio this week, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said that the Gulf oil spill was an example of the free market working properly. He reasoned that BP had the most to lose from the spill, namely $100 million per day in costs. And thus, BP had the greatest incentive to clean-up the oil spill. His conclusion is odd: The market functions properly when an oil company has repeated safety violations, ultimately causing an oil rig explosion that causes a loss in lives and perhaps the greatest environmental catastrophe in history.
