Tipping Maryland To Sen. Clinton?

It sure looks like it.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will endorse Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton at a campaign rally in Annapolis Wednesday and has begun encouraging his supporters to back her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, sources familiar with his plans said.

The governor's endorsement is hardly a surprise -- when speaking in the abstract about the next president, O'Malley has been known to use the pronoun "she" -- but it would solidify Clinton's position in the race for Maryland's delegates to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

She's got Sen. Barb on her team as well, and frankly she seems to be putting together a lot of endorsements from coast to coast. That continues to solidify my belief that no other campaigns in the field right now are anywhere near as organized or focused as hers. And in 2008, that's probably more important than individual issue positions.
