"None Of It Made Sense": Martin O'Malley's Long Year After Running For President
Martin O'Malley was right. Democrats did want a challenger to Hillary Clinton — it just wasn't him. Now the former Maryland governor has emerged from a long year, is again campaigning for local Democrats, and trying to make sense of what happened in 2016.
