...not a potted plant

In notes on Maryland campaigns in today's Post, U.S. House Minority Whip (not Leader yet, as the Post wrote) said defended the potential diversity of the Democratic ticket, even as he backed Senate candidate, Rep. Ben Cardin. In particular he focused on LG candidate/O'Malley running mate state Del. Anthony Brown, saying "I am really outraged at the press's treatment of Anthony Brown. Anthony Brown is not a potted plant. This is not some throwaway guy." Powerful words.

I assume you mean Steny Hoyer?

Good statement, but it will take more than that to heal the wounds in the MD Democratic party's relationship with AA voters.

Mfume and Simms could be a good start...

I'm glad someone said this. Anthony Brown is a cool guy. In fact, I think maybe we ought to be making more hay about him in the blogsphere. Maybe some profiles and the like.

To me, it sounds like damning him with faint praise. Not "he's great and you are missing out" but rather "he is something more than (literally) a vegetable."
