    What’s really important in today’s troubled world? One might think the answers are obvious: the disturbing war between Hamas and Israel that threatens to spread into something much larger, out-of-control spread of Ebola in Africa, corporate and sovereign defaults in Portugal and Argentina, Chinese military aggression in South Asia and whatever else we may have left out. But to Democrats, the focus is on Operation Change The Subject 2014, as partisans shift blame for presidential inaction away from Obama just as he heads to Martha’s Vineyard for yet another extended holiday.

    PPP's newest North Carolina poll finds Kay Hagan continuing to grow her lead over Thom Tillis as the legislative session drags on. Hagan now has 41% to 34% for Tillis and 8% for Libertarian Sean Haugh. Her lead is up from 2 points in May and 5 points in June. The protracted legislative session with Tillis at the helm of it can't be doing him any favors. Only 19% of voters approve of the job the General Assembly is doing to 57% who disapprove, and legislative Republicans specifically have a 31/52 favorability rating. Those things are working together to help...

    Anyone who loves politics and horse racing is out to try and handicap anything this week. My favorite Saturday, outside any Saturday that Louisiana State University plays football, is the Kentucky Derby. It might not be very fashionable these days to be a horse degenerate, but that’s what I am. Thinking about the up and coming presidential election, I will use some horse racing analogies to talk about 2016. On the Democratic side, there has never been a more non-incumbent prohibitive favorite than Hillary Clinton. Seems to me the best horse analogy would be Secretariat running in the Belmont Stakes...

    Top Democratic strategist, James Carville, advised Democrats seeking reelection to avoid discussing the economy. “The whole notion of an economic recovery is pure poison to any Democrat hoping to retain his or her seat,” Carville lamented. “The Administration has spurred too many false hopes with repeated promises of 'green shoots.' Our Party's credibility on this issue is totally shot.” Instead, Carville recommends “an approach that transcends the stale notion that getting people back to work ought to be a goal of the nation's economic policy. Democrats need to embrace the decline in workforce participation and increase in the number on...

    Democratic strategist James Carville predicted the next GOP presidential nominee will come from Texas. "It's either going to be Ted Cruz or Rick Perry," Carville said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." Cruz is a freshman senator from Texas and a tea party favorite, and Perry is serving out his last term as Texas governor. Perry ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 but came up short after a few fumbles on the campaign trail. But Perry has advantages, Carville said. "He's been around the track once, and he can raise a bucketload of money," Carville said of Perry....

I don't think he was done in, in this instance by the Republicans, or done in by the media, done in by anything.” He also defended former boss Bill Clinton’s criticism of Obama over the president’s broken promise about Americans keeping their health insurance plans under Obamacare, but said the former president should have used kinder language.

    James Carville stands firm on Obama testicle bash By Peter Nicholas - Tribune Washington Bureau, Steve Krakauer - Mediaite 10:51 AM 11/19/2010 It was clear who James Carville supported during the 2008 Democratic primary, squarely for Sen. Hillary Clinton over Sen. Barack Obama. So how much has changed? After telling an old campaign joke, ['If Hillary gave him one of her balls, they’d both have two'], Carville went on CNN to reiterate “I’m not sorry and I don’t apologize.” Last night he called in to CNN, where the host said some were outraged. Carville told everyone to just chill: “Outraged?...

    Dem strategists: Obama bungled 2010By DAVID CATANESE Updated: 11/18/10 3:01 PM EST Two former advisers to President Bill Clinton accused the Obama administration of minimizing the economic crisis and botching a narrative that could have limited Democratic losses this midterm election cycle. “The White House had the best and the brightest, but they, what would Bush say, misunderestimated, whatever the word is,” said Democratic consultant James Carville Thursday at a breakfast with reporters held by the Christian Science Monitor. Pollster Stan Greenberg said Obama downplayed “an almost Depression-like economic crisis,” by inaccurately projecting the magnitude of job losses. “They predicated...

    RenewAmerica received a mass emailing last week asking RA to publicize a new "premier nonpartisan social networking site providing civic services and connecting politicians, voters, and political causes across the U.S." The site, which is meant as sort of a politically-oriented Facebook, is called and is touted as a "groundbreaking one-stop platform that arms people with the information they need to make political choices." Ostensibly, by participating in the site's "one-stop" social networking (rather than doing their own homework as citizens), voters will become politically smart. The site's intent By all appearances, the site is the political establishment's response...

    New York's political establishment gathered last night at the Waldorf-Astoria for the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner to poke fun at everything from the midterm elections to Mayor Bloomberg's war on soda. The black-tie affair was headlined by political odd couple Mary Matalin and husband James Carville. Carville, a loyal Dem, had a laugh about the tough fight ahead for his party next month. He joked, "All those Muslim cabdrivers are now saying Obama's a Christian."

    Political strategist James Carville says Senate Democrats face a “do-or-die” deadline and desperately need contributions to stave off a looming defeat in November. Carville voiced his concerns in an urgent fundraising e-mail he sent out on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. He is asking Democrats to donate — even $5 — to combat “Tea Party fervor” and “Karl Rove’s Billionaire Corps,” and says if the DSCC misses its fundraising goal “you can count us out in November. Harsh, but true.” Carville’s full e-mail follows: Tea Party fervor is at a fever pitch, and these races are as close...
