IN OTHER WORDS: Your move Mr. McDonnell.
Question of the Day
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley might have been on the other side of the world last week, leading a state trade mission to India, but that didn’t stop him from getting in a playful dig at Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.
The governors, who lead their respective Democratic and Republican governors associations, have engaged in a relatively friendly rivalry, disagreeing amicably on many national issues while playing up the economic competition between their neighboring states.
While speaking to reporters last week via teleconference, Mr. O'Malley deflected criticism of his India visit, hailing it as a crucial networking opportunity for the more than 100 state officials and business leaders who made the trip.
And of course, he made sure to point out that Maryland’s traveling party, which he described as the largest ever brought to India by any state, was larger than the group of Virginia leaders that Mr. McDonnell led to India last month.
Your move, Mr. McDonnell.
Quitters Never Win
Ms. Cheh, Ward 3 Democrat, asked the room how the Caps would fare that night under new leadership. Turns out, at least one witness had an extensive opinion on the matter.
“Not good,” Charles H. Epps said.
“I don’t like quitters and they quit on their coach,” he added, laying out a basis for his view until the mics were working.
Another witness, Jabari Zakiya of Empower DC, offered an alternative viewpoint: “I guarantee the Wizards won’t lose.”
