Sheila Dixon: Baltimore's Marion Barry?

Wednesday's paper contained the good news for fans of Sheila Dixon that she is working with those hoping to unseat Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ("Dixon at work behind the scenes," July 3).

Should any of those candidates prevail, we expect Ms. Dixon would carry considerable influence in city government in the coming years.

Will Baltimore voters follow the example of voters in Washington, D.C., who keep returning Marion Barry to office?
