Paging Elizabeth Warren: This is your moment.   In 2007, Democrats were delirious with rage about the Iraq war. Hillary Clinton, the "inevitable" presidential front-runner, had voted for the war and refused to apologize for it. Other leading candidates, including Joe Biden, John Edwards and Chris Dodd, voted for it too. This left a huge opening for a credible antiwar candidate. Barack Obama, inexperienced and underqualified, nonetheless jumped into the vacuum. The rest, as they say, is history.

As Gov. Martin O'Malley seeks to build support for a potential presidential campaign, a new poll conducted for The Baltimore Sun shows enthusiasm among voters in his home state is conspicuously low - and might be slipping. Despite high-profile victories in Annapolis and a growing national buzz about his future, nearly six in 10 Maryland voters said they would not back the governor if he decides to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, while 14 percent said they would.

I agree in principle with Jules Witcover's column on of Hillary Clinton's ("The rise of Hillary Clinton," Nov. 27). I think she would have been a much better president than Barack Obama. But why no mention of the Benghazi fiasco? She may not be involved in the mis-communication, dis-communication, and lack of communication from the administration, but she should be harshly criticized for the lack of intelligent planning inherent in an ambassador going to Benghazi in the first place, not to mention with almost no security.

New grandmother and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to stay home in New York with daughter Chelsea today, skipping a planned high-dollar fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown.  Instead, former President Bill Clinton will headline the event in her place.  "I am very grateful to President Clinton for changing his schedule to travel to Maryland and attend our event this evening," Lt.

Apparently, if the secretary of state needs to take a sick day, she had better get a note from her doctor. A very "transparent" note, a very detailed note. With enough copies to send to her most vociferous critics. Hillary Rodham Clinton suffered a fall or a fainting spell in early December while recovering from a nasty flu that had left her dehydrated, and doctors said she had sustained a concussion as a result. Right away, conservative talking heads scoffed, saying she was faking it so she wouldn't have to appear before Congress and testify about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, where a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died in what is now being described as an attack by terrorists linked to al-Qaida.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

Many Republicans and some conservative Democratic legislators in Annapolis believe the Maryland General Assembly has become a proving ground for the presidential ambitions of Gov. Martin O'Malley. The governor's critics believe that by pushing issues such as gun control, alternative energy, death penalty repeal and other progressive touchstone issues, he is trying to build street cred among the liberal voters who dominate the Democratic presidential primary process. Well, the critics are probably right.

In American domestic politics, messing with Social Security is known as "the third rail," referring to the power source for trains that is fatal to the touch. In foreign policy discussions, invoking the name of Adolf Hitler promises the same lethal result. Former first lady and secretary of state Hillary Clinton learned the lesson in the wake of Russia's invasion of Crimea and parts of Ukraine. She caught hell from critics when she compared it to Hitler's 1938 seizure of the heavily German Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia under Neville Chamberlain's notorious pact with the devil in Munich.

The Baltimore Sun Subbing for new grandmother Hillary Clinton on late notice, former President Bill Clinton became the star attraction Tuesday night at a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown at a posh estate in Potomac. The Brown campaign said the former president helped Brown draw about 450 guests and raise more than $1.2 million for his campaign against Republican Larry Hogan in the Nov. 4 election. Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential nomination, had been the expected headliner at the big-ticket event at an estate in one of Maryland's wealthiest communities.

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.

Jonathan Strum's commentary on Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects resonated deeply with me ("Dynasty or democracy?" Aug. 18). We have had quite enough of the Bush and Clinton families already. For the sake of a healthy republic it would be best, as he points out so well, if name recognition and money did not determine governance. I think that there is enough dysfunction in our political system already. We don't need to add to it the dysfunction of these political families.

What if Hillary Clinton doesn't seek the presidency in 2016? Waiting patiently and noncommittally in the wings is Vice President Joe Biden. He might well be reluctant to take her on, considering the powerhouse she has become, with an army of Democratic women "Ready for Hillary" to unleash them. But almost certainly Mr. Biden would run if she didn't, and why not? Many, particularly Republicans relieved at not having to face her in the general election, would peddle their favorite impression: that Mr. Biden is a loose cannon who would run the country with his foot in his mouth.

Faith is making a comeback among liberal Democrats, but they still have a ways to go. First, some history. Hoping to attract some Evangelical Christian votes more than 20 years ago, former vice president Al Gore wrote that the biblical story of Noah and the Ark could be paraphrased in modern terms, "Thou shalt preserve biodiversity" ("Earth in the Balance" p. 245). Mr. Gore also claimed the first recorded instance of pollution was when Cain killed Abel and Abel's blood "falls on the ground, rendering it fallow" (p. 247)

Gov. Martin O'Malley sidestepped a question Monday about whether he was writing a book -- a frequent prelude to to a candidacy for president -- while keeping the door open to a run for the Democratic nomination in 2016. In an interview on the Fusion cable and satellite network, O'Malley showed a deft ability to dodge inconvenient questions, such as interviewer Jorge Ramos attempt to lure him into saying whether the country would have been better off if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency in 2008.

Thank you to William L. Jacobsen Jr. for his commentary in The Baltimore Sun ( "President Hillary Clinton," July 31). As a woman reader of The Sun, I'm feeling as though this commentary is the first draft for one to be written on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. I'm also feeling that the same lingo about President Barack Obama will be a tagline for Ms. Clinton. If we didn't want Barack Obama to become president of the United States we are racist. If we don't want Hilary Clinton to be president of the United States we are misogynists.
