Now this is Unity
Forget Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. In Maryland, there are few politicians who have held such enmity for each other than County Executive Jack B. Johnson and former state Del. Rushern L. Baker III.
Baker spent months beating up on Johnson when he ran against him for executive in 2006. Johnson was then seen as a key behind-the-scenes player in ensuring the Democratic Central Committee did not choose Baker to fill a vacancy in the state senate created by the January death of Sen. Gwendolyn T. Britt.
After Baker failed to get the nod, Johnson exulted, "I don't want to call him a loser, but that's basically what he is."
But maybe the thin air in Denver is getting to the two men. Take a look at this picture of good feelings between them, snapped and submitted to Maryland Moment by Del. Justin Ross.
