The Maryland GOP gathered in Ocean City last weekend for a sleepy little pow-wow, the party's semiannual convention.The latest stumble by Democratic Gov. Parris N. Glendening offered fodder for gleeful grumbling, and there was the usual bitter whining about Ellen R. Sauerbrey's loss to Mr. Glendening by just 5,993 votes in November.Oddly, however, the talk of presidential politics and Maryland's early primary in March never got above a low hum.That was surprising for the faithful of a party that is enjoying a rebirth in Maryland and is just nine months from a contested primary.

THE BUSH administration outdid itself at mid-term in naming former governor of Tennessee Lamar Alexander to be secretary of education. But it may also have painted itself into a murky corner, for this gifted politician-educator brings an unsettling blend of substantive pluses and ethical question marks to American education's most visible job.Few modern-day cabinet appointments have evoked higher approval levels. Alexander is an authentic education reformer: bursting with ideas, encyclopedically informed and capable of broad-vision leadership.

Patrick J. Buchanan's anti-free-trade, anti-Washington message may not play as well in Maryland as it did in New Hampshire, where two days ago the feisty TV commentator won the nation's first Republican presidential primary.That's the assessment of Maryland Republicans who see Mr. Buchanan as too extreme and divisive to win the primary here March 5 or to gain the party's nomination in August. Also, state GOP leaders say, Maryland Republicans are more moderate than their New Hampshire counterparts.

WASHINGTON -- English would be declared the "national language" of the United States under a measure the Senate approved yesterday, a largely symbolic move that supporters said would promote unity and encourage assimilation by immigrants. The measure would not reverse current government practices of providing some materials and services - including voting ballots - in other languages. But it would establish that people have no right or entitlement to ask government officials to provide services or materials in other languages, unless that is authorized by law. Minutes after adding the provision to the immigration bill it is debating, the Senate passed a second amendment with softer phrasing.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- I had my own Dole Moment a week before the New Hampshire primary. A student I'd assigned to produce a 90-second commentary in support of a designated presidential candidate stood up to do her best for the man from Kansas.She described him as ''an American of modest beginnings who has seen his own bad fortune get worse.'' This was the case for Senator Dole.Of course, she was describing his origins in dust-bowl Kansas and his war wounds -- not his whole life. But it was a line that resonated with the soberness of this campaign.

WHEN Gary Cooper met "High Noon's" villains in the classic showdown on a dusty main street in the Old West, there was little doubt who would win out.Old "Coop" gunned down the bad guys, tossed his marshal's star in the dust as a sign of contempt at the cowardice of the lily-livered townsfolk who failed to stand up with him against the evil forces, and left on his honeymoon with Grace Kelly. In "High Noon" the good guy won, and his reward was to ride into the sunset with his best girl.This classic shoot-out is now in the process of being re-enacted, but not in the dust of a godforsaken cow town.
