O'Malley teams up with Sid the Science Kid


In perhaps his most memorable public service ad, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) teamed up with a cantankerous elder -- then-Comptroller William Donald Schaefer (D) -- to promote off-peak travel to the beach.

Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) has gone in the opposite direction. He is appearing in a new ad with Sid, the highly curious computer-generated star of "Sid the Science Kid" on PBS Kids.

The ads, which are appearing primarily on Maryland Public Television, promote the H1N1 flu vaccination, which O'Malley calls "the best way to keep you and your community safe and healthy.".

Sid, it turns out, has been quite the jet-setter lately, dropping in and out of state capitals arounds the country. More than a dozen other governors have cut similar spots, including Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D).
