Obama Slips On Maryland Governor’s Name

For a moment there, President Obama apparently forgot Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s name during a Monday speech about education to the National Governors Association.

Seeking to praise the governor for his efforts on education, Obama mistakenly referred to him as “Jack O’Malley” — before correcting himself a few seconds later.

Politico’s Byron Tau notes that “Jack O’Malley is a former Chicago prosecutor and a lecturer at the University of Chicago, where Obama also lectured.”
