Running a distant third in what polls suggest is a two-person race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Martin O'Malley might have found a foreign policy challenge to his opponents.  

During the Nov. 14 Democratic debate, the former Maryland governor clashed with front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton over whether Syria was the United States' fight.

"Scapegoating an entire religious community and rejecting those fleeing ISIL's terrorism and persecution is what the terrorists want. We need to step up and act like Americans, in accordance with our principles," he said in a statement Monday afternoon. "This is a time for American leadership, not a time for us to cower."

Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley spent the weekend making overtures to the Palmetto State's Democratic establishment.
