O'Malley Admits He's Mulling White House Bid

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) finally admitted to the Baltimore Sun that he's considering a presidential bid.

Said O'Malley: "I need to be spending a lot more energy and time giving serious consideration and preparation to what-- if anything--I might have to offer should I decide to run for president in 2016."

Harry Enten: "O'Malley will likely need progressives' money to overcome his lack of national name recognition. He's currently polling at 0% in an Iowa caucus ballot test, even when Clinton isn't on the poll question. He's also currently at 0% in a New Hampshire primary ballot test... [The problem is] O'Malley doesn't have a history of attracting a liberal donor base."

Daily Beast: "Weighing O'Malley's chances is something of an academic exercise at this point because if Hillary Clinton enters the race, she will likely clear the field as, to a lesser degree, would Joe Biden, and the chances that both of them sit out '16 is a decided long shot."
