    They all have an uphill battle. Hogan is popular.

    The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

    For a Rep governor in a HEAVILY Dem state I understand the compromises he has to make. There is no way he can steer the agenda too far right. Plus, I think he does a pretty good job keeping the two Mike's in check. Last I heard, his approval rating is in the 60%'s, which is damn near impossible in this state.

    The two - one edge by registered Dems sort of negates that approval rate. Do you think that edge can be overcome by the left?

    I didn't read the story, just the headline, and my first reaction is, "that's because Martin O'Malley sucks " He is easily one of the worst things that ever happened to Maryland.

    PS, I'm not a huge fan of Larry Hogan.
