Lise Van Susteren, the only woman running for Maryland's open U.S. Senate seat, bowed out of the race yesterday, pointing to concern that she would not be able to raise enough money to emerge from the crowded Democratic primary field. A forensic psychiatrist and political neophyte, Van Susteren said in a statement that she would not yet endorse one of her Democratic opponents but promised to help the eventual nominee to victory in November. "We need to elect people from diverse occupational backgrounds, who bring skills honed from success in other areas, and whose life experiences sharpen their passion to consider the lives of real people when making policy," she said.

So there's John P. Coale, the big-time-Democratic-fundraiser-turned-Mc Caniac, in the spin room after last week's presidential debate. Signs announce the various campaign surrogates offering their opinions on who'd won. He spots one with a familiar name. "I saw this sign, 'O'Malley,' and I think, 'Who has the same name as our governor who's on Obama's staff?' and I walked over, and it's Martin," Coale recalled yesterday. Coale, a trial lawyer, gave Martin O'Malley a $500,000 loan in the waning days of his campaign for governor.

Psychiatrist Lise Van Susteren, a political novice and sister of Fox News television personality Greta Van Susteren, announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate yesterday, saying she wants to fix the nation's fractured health care system and doesn't think current officeholders are up to the task. "I am not a career politician. I am a citizen fed up with the way the country is headed," Van Susteren, 54, said during a kickoff speech at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. "While they may be well meaning, I have lost confidence that the professional politicians can turn things around," she said.

Keep your elbows off the table. Address the gal with the tiara as "Your Majesty." And after it's all over, issue a press release. "President Hrabowski Dines with Queen Elizabeth II at British Embassy," says the headline from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. About 120 people can say they had dinner with Queen Elizabeth at the British ambassador's residence last week. Just a few were actually at Her Majesty's table. Not Hillary Clinton. Not Martin O'Malley. But UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski scored big-time Britannic bragging rights.

The list of contenders for U.S. Senate in Maryland will soon grow longer, as a pair of deep-pocketed candidates who will stress career success outside of politics prepare to enter the race to replace retiring Paul S. Sarbanes. Lise Van Susteren, a forensic psychiatrist who is the sister of Fox Television personality Greta Van Susteren, is scheduled to formally announce her candidacy this week. A Democrat, Van Susteren, 54, moved to Montgomery County from the District of Columbia less than two years ago. Closing in on a similar announcement is Joshua Rales, a philanthropist and owner of a real estate investment firm.

For $29.95, you expected, what? O.J. Simpson confessing that he did indeed kill his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman? Or that his pledge to search for their real killers had led to suspects?As the producer of the just-released video "O.J. Simpson: The Interview" has said, he'd be selling the tape for a lot more than $29.95, plus shipping and handling, for bombshells of that magnitude.Instead, the video offers more of the same that we've become accustomed to when it comes to the Simpson saga: more nitpicking of the trial's finer points, which you'll find either enlightening or tiresome, depending on the degree of your personal O.J. obsession; more -- and sometimes interesting -- discussion of the racial sores opened by the case.

Sharing blame for the fiasco at Towson U. The finger-pointing regarding ex-president Mark Perkins and the debacle at Towson University have shown us there is enough blame to go around: To the Board of Regents of the university system, for embracing Mr. Perkins less than a month ago, then decapitating him without full investigation or calm consideration of whether the punishment fit the crime. To Mr. Perkins, for projecting high-profile extravagance in a year of budget squeeze and for alienating people by projecting the image of a snake-oil salesman.

You saw it yourself in black and white, albeit the grainy black and white of an amateurishly shot video, and like many, you perhaps thought you were seeing a clear-cut case of police brutality.But 12 jurors also saw that video, and their reaction was to exonerate the officers taped as they surrounded and clubbed Rodney King.How could a video have one effect on the so-called jury of public opinion and an apparently different one with the actual jury in the Simi Valley courtroom?"They didn't see the same video you saw," said Harvey Weitz, a New York-based attorney who analyzed the Rodney King case for the Courtroom TV network.
