Martin O’Malley had one clear chance to make waves within the Democratic National Committee, and he seized it, delivering a fiery speech Friday that condemned his party’s leadership for what he called a process “rigged” to help Hillary Rodham Clinton — namely, curtailing the number of presidential primary debates. Accusing party leaders of trying to keep Democratic ideas hidden as the Republican presidential candidates spew “racist hate” from their debate lecterns, Mr. O’Malley, the former Maryland governor and mayor of Baltimore, questioned the decision to hold “four debates and four debates only” before the first four states finish voting. “This is totally unprecedented in our party’s history,” Mr. O’Malley said. “This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before.
Thus making the title, “Caught in the Middle’” a perfect title for his article. Though he loosely states that being in the middle gets politicians fired, many who have chosen this path have found themselves seeking other forms of employment.

McCarthy in his attempt to show Werner as a incompetent candidate told the press repeatedly that Werner was seventy-three or even eighty-nine when his actual age was sixty-six. Following these exaggerations, he would say things such as “He is past seventy and would be nearing his 80th year when the term expired” (Judgeship Race Warm, Campaign Ends), “Even though he is willing to sacrifice himself, the job of a judge is too exacting for a man of his age” (Schlesinger, 88). At the time it didn’t really matter that his facts were incorrect because McCarthy’s words were printed and the written word was given validity.

Yet the issue of populism is not how this method is used, but how it’s used for. Political ideals that are righteously wrong that are used to make the population believe or perceive as their right, twisting the true intention of these politicians to make the populous believe that they are on their side.
