If you ever live half way between Baltimore and Washington DC, then you will understand the split personality thing.

In addition, P.G. county, MD's other large suburban D.C. jurisdiction sort of lags in overall influence compared to its relative population. I would even argue that the Baltimore suburbs within Howard, Anne Arundel, Baltimore City and County are of greater importance than PG county.
There's quite a large number of federal workers living in PG County and at the moment, it's home to the largest number of Metro stations in the DC area outside of DC itself. The county in general has a lot of untapped potential that it's working on unearthing. Either way, I wouldn't say it's influence is abysmal, especially politically.
