By John Wagner

Martin O'Malley (D) will get some more national exposure -- among policy wonks, at least -- when he delivers a keynote address next month at a conference hosted by Governing magazine.

As part of the conference at the National Press Club in Washington, O'Malley is scheduled to speak at a Feb.1 luncheon. The two-day gathering is being billed as an "Outlook in the States & Localities Conference."

Others on the agenda include Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Mark Zandi, chief economist and co-founder of Moody's Economy.com.

The coming year could provide several more opportunities for O'Malley, who recently ascended to the chairmanship of the Democratic Governors Association. In 2009, Governing named O'Malley one of its "Public Officials of the Year."

Good for Irish Boy, however, I hope he is paying for this junket out of his own pocket. And how does this benefit Maryland? Under OMalleys watch, the state is just about broke and he hasn't come up with any new, creative, out of the box solutions to the budget problems.I wouldn't let him lead a pack of Cub Scouts.
