Scenes from O'Malley's inauguration
About 2,500 people streamed to a cavernous military hall in Baltimore that was transformed Wednesday night into the site of Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's second inaugural celebration, John Wagner reports on the Maryland Politics blog.
Attendees were treated to the governor's preferred beer, Guinness, among other beverage and buffet options, as well as the music of his Celtic rock outfit and another Irish band that O'Malley (D) counts among his favorites.
After some playful hesitation about taking stage, O'Malley's March opened with a cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line," a song the governor said he was playing for the people of Maryland. (Four years ago, he opened with Bob Dylan's "The Times, They Are a-Changin' " following his first victory over then-Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R).
