If you ever wondered what relentless campaign for the president during his re-election campaign might get you, it’s a co-chairmanship of the Council of Governors. That’s at least what Gov. Martin O’Malley got for his trouble.
But it’s not as if the position doesn’t jibe with his CV. The Council of Governors addresses “issues related to the National Guard, homeland security and defense support to civil authorities in the event of terrorism or natural disaster.” O’Malley is already co-chair of a homeland security panel for the National Governors Association and a member of the U.S. Homeland Security Advisory Panel.
So if he’s not qualified for this new appointment, then everyone’s in trouble.
