Gov. Martin O’Malley: Presidency Not a Crown to be Passed Between Two Families

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is interviewed on "This Week."

"The presidency of the United States is not some crown to be passed between two families. It is an awesome and sacred trust to be earned and exercised on behalf of the American people," O Malley told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday.

When asked whether he was referring specifically to the Clinton and Bush families, the former governor said simply that the principle would apply to any two families.
