Despite his frequent out-of-state appearances and obvious interest in continuing his career on the national stage, Governor O'Malley must still have some unfinished business in Annapolis. He proclaimed himself "sick" of the gambling issue and eager to get it behind him, but he called lawmakers back anyway and unleashed his formidable legislative team to round up the necessary votes. Translation: He still has legislation he wants to move through the General Assembly during the next two years, and he knows that it would go nowhere in the Senate if he didn't make a push for Mr. Miller's gambling proposal. But what legislation? Wind power is an obvious guess - it passed the House but not the Senate this year.
