Martin O’Malley on Challenging Clinton: ‘The Presidency Is Not Some Crown to Be Passed Between Two Families’

Former Gov. O'Malley says he's the one (not Clinton) with 'proven executive experience'

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley stepped up his criticism of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Sunday, breaking with a previous strategy of ignoring questions about her.

Without ever directly attacking the former secretary of state during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” O’Malley portrayed himself as a new face for the Democratic Party and a progressive alternative, more willing to directly confront inequality and take on Wall Street.

“I think that our country always benefits from new leadership and new perspectives,” he said. “Let’s be honest here, the presidency of the United States is not some crown to be passed between two families. It is an awesome and sacred trust"
