  • Mary Matalin: Trump Has 85-90% Chance of Winning

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Wow! Veteran political strategist Mary Matalin is not just “confident” that Donald Trump is going to win, she thinks he has an 85-90% chance of winning. And even that is conservative compared to the 100% chance she originally claimed during her appearance on today’s With All Due Respect. Note that Matalin is not a rabid Trump partisan. To the contrary, she quit the Republican party in May, and says that rather than having a dog in the race, she has, in Trump, merely a “mini-puppy.” Matalin took an amusing shot at her husband, Dem strategist James Carville. When John Heilemann...

    Bloomberg TV | 9/8/16 | Mark Halperin and John Heilemann
    Mary Matlin was just on "With All Due Respect" on Bloomberg TV with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Matling was never a Trump fan but she now says she will vote for him. They ask her for the odds of winning for each candidate and she replied Trump is at 100%. She said there is something going on in the country that the press refuses to see but the country was leaning towards Trump. To say they were dumbfounded with be a mild statement. They were hysterical. It was a thing of beauty. The show will be repeated on MSNBC...

    Monday on Newsmax TV’s”The Steve Malzberg Show,” Republican political consultant Mary Matalin said she needs some conservative reassurances from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before she commits to voting for him, arguing she wasn’t just going to vote for Trump to stop Hillary.
  • Mary Matalin, Republican Strategist & Pundit, Changes Political Parties (let the RINO purge begin!)

    Mary Matalin, a high-profile political pundit and veteran strategist for the Republican Party, changed her party registration to Libertarian from Republican, she said on Thursday. But in an interview with Bloomberg, which reported on the switch, she emphasized that her decision was not connected to Donald J. Trump’s being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. She described herself as a voter as a “provisional Trump” and a “never Hillary,” referring to the leading Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Pressed on Thursday about why she switched political parties, Ms. Matalin told Bloomberg Politics that she was a Republican in the “Jeffersonian, Madisonian sense.”...

    ORANGE - Two of the nation's most prominent political consultants visited Orange Monday night. Mary Matalin and James Carville were part of the Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Lamar State College-Orange. They spoke to a crowd of more than 600 at the Lutcher Theater. The two represent different political parties, Matalin is a Republican and Carville is a Democrat. Both have presidential wins under their belts. Matalin with George H.W. Bush and Carville with Bill Clinton. Matalin and Carville have been married for 22 years. Before they took the stage at the Lutcher, they met with 12News. They were both...

    The wide variety of potential candidates for the Republican presidential nomination boils down to one question in many quarters — which one can beat Hillary Clinton? But to at least one powerful Republican consultant, Mary Matalin, the "Hillary" question is pointless. "Hillary Clinton’s lead is ephemeral," Matalin told Politico Magazine. "As soon as she gets in, if she gets in, she will be challenged and it will evaporate. Just the nature of the beast. I predict she doesn’t run." ---snip--- Political consultant and media strategist Mark McKinnon predicts a "Clash of the Titans" battle between Clinton and Bush for the...

    Until now, the only Democrat allowed to cozy up with GOP superstar strategist Mary Matalin was her husband, political consultant James Carville. My support for Mitch (Landrieu) has nothing to do with his party,' Mary Matalin said. But it looks like another member of the opposition has won a bit of Matalin's heart. According to an invitation circulating this week, Matalin is slated to co-host an upcoming $1,000-a-person fundraiser in Washington for Lt. Gov Mitch Landrieu. Matalin, who has spent time in the White House as an assistant to former President George W. Bush and counselor to former Vice President...

    In a venture to the weird, Republican political strategist Mary Matalin is on tap to host a fund raiser for Democrat Mitch Landrieu in his bid for the New Orleans mayoral slot. NOLA reports that Matalin is slated to co-host an upcoming $1,000-a-person fundraiser in Washington for current Lt. Gov Mitch Landrieu, brother of Senator Mary Landrieu. Matalin says she is supporting Landrieu because of his common sense on issues and his leadership ability; she says it has nothing to do with party.

    Bottom line: The book is a good read, an unusually detailed front-row seat view to how strained campaigns always are, and a compelling insight into Palin's perspective. Its long-term publishing and political impact are unknown for now, though as Palin moves out of the mainstream media monster publicity machine and into more hospitable, relevant political terrain, the prospects for success on both fronts improve exponentially. But its impact on personal and professional relationships is a sad one indeed and one I hope conservatives don't let it divide us just when we are marching toward a promising midterm, which reflects an...

    Here is video from CNN yesterday where GOP strategist Mary Matalin was on with Democrat Strategist husband James Carville talking about the Health Care debate. Carville was his usual nasty self, launching into an attack on Sarah Palin and conservatives in general as being "nutty" for believing in Creation and holding traditional values. But Carville's wife Mary Matalin skewered him when he finished the attack by saying: Here's a rule for your viewers going forward for Sunday: The greater the Carville level of vitriol, the more they are losing." Matalin's rule is true across the board for Democrats and the...

    Here is video of Democratic Strategist James Carville and his wife, Republican Strategist Mary Matalin talking about Gov. Sarah Palin's future and her chances in 2012 and beyond. Prior to discussing Sarah Palin, they first discuss the chances of Obama's Health Care legislation passing. Their discussion with Wolf Blitzer about Gov. Sarah Palin begins at the 4:14 mark of the video. Carville essentially says that Democrats would love to have Palin run as the GOP Nominee in 2012, and he says it's Conservative voices like Fred Barnes and Peggy Noonan that have been the hardest on Palin. Mary Matalin says...

    A one-time aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney suggested Sunday that recent reports about Cheney and the CIA are a distraction designed to avert attention away from the policy struggles of the Obama administration. “This is very suspect timing,” Republican strategist and former Cheney adviser Mary Matalin said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union. “The president’s agenda is almost in shambles. His [poll] numbers are dropping. Isn’t it coincidental; they gin up a Cheney story.” Matalin also said that the Executive branch has some authority under the nation’s intelligence laws to not disclose information to Congress under certain...

    (CNN) — Mary Matalin, a former adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, sharply criticized former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage Sunday for his comments about the CIA's Bush-era interrogation techniques. In an interview with the English language service of Qatar-based network Al Jazeera last week, Armitage said: “I hope, had I known about it at the time I was serving, I would’ve had the courage to resign. But I don’t know. It’s in hindsight now.” In response, Matalin told CNN's John King on State of The Union: "If Richard Armitage, as the number two guy in the State Department,...

    Appearing on Tuesday's "Today" show, Republican strategist Mary Matalin slammed the media for its "hair-on-fire" coverage of Sarah Palin's selection as the Republican vice presidential nominee of John McCain. In particular, she corrected a previous segment by David Gregory which asserted that the Alaska governor had hired an attorney to defend herself against an ethics probe into possible attempts to dismiss a state trooper. Matalin asserted to host Matt Lauer that it wasn't true "that she's hired a lawyer to deal with this trooper issue. The attorney general, state attorney general hired the lawyer." She forcefully added, "That's what they...

    Mary Matalin to head publishing imprint NEW YORK - Mary Matalin, the Republican pundit and strategist also known as the wife/sparring partner of Democratic consultant James Carville, will run a new conservative publishing imprint at Simon & Schuster. "It's the absolute nexus of what I love to do," Matalin told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "I think we're on the threshold of a whole new way of looking at politics and policy and there's something vital about getting those ideas down in book form." The imprint, currently unnamed, is expected to release six to 10 books a year, beginning in...

    A senior Bush administration advisor said Friday that John Kerry should apologize to Vice President Cheney and his wife Lynne for outing their daughter as "a lesbian" on national TV. "If he wants to get past [this controversy] as his campaign is saying he wants to, then he should just apologize and let's move on," Mary Matalin told NBC "Today Show" host Katie Couric. "[Kerry] was using Mary [Cheney] as a political football here," Matalin complained. "She's a behind the scenes person. She's not the poster girl for gay issues. She doesn't talk to the press. She's not public. ....

    I posted this late Sunday night and I thought it might get more traffic today. Here is the original post. W 2004!!! With the new "dream team" of Carville and Begala in place, I thought it worthy of posting Carville's utter throwing away of Zell and his blaming Republicans for making Zell turn on his Dem buddies. Key points: Zell Miller was Carville's former employer and Miller officiated Carville and Matalins wedding!!! There is no bottom for Carville and this marks the beginning of the next phase in the battle for the White House. I wonder if Carl Rove forced...

    September 6, 2004 -- WASHINGTON — The long knives are out for Democrat John Kerry's campaign manager, Mary Beth Cahill, as infighting rages while his slumping campaign struggles to come back against President Bush. "You'd think they could find a man to throw overboard one of these days," zinged Republican strategist Mary Matalin, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney on NBC's "Meet the Press." She said Democrats blamed 1988 loser Michael Dukakis' stumbles on campaign manager Susan Estrich and Al Gore's 2000 fumbles on campaign chief Donna Brazile, and "now they're trying to blame poor Mary Beth Cahill"...
