    James Carville on Tuesday said the GOP could still avoid making Donald Trump their presidential nominee after multiple controversies. “I honestly believe this — there’s some chance Trump is not going to be the nominee,” the pundit said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” Carville said Republicans are rushing away from Trump after the billionaire criticized a judge’s Hispanic heritage. “What we’re seeing here is a real unraveling,” he said. "I think this is going at a lot faster speed than we can imagine. I just think that when these things in politics start to happen, they just don’t st

    George Stephanopoulos, a former White House communications director for President Clinton, appears to have lost faith in Hillary Clinton’s handling of her newest scandal. Now the host of ABC’s This Week, Stephanopoulos said Clinton’s entourage has demonstrated that it is “not up to speed.” But longtime Clinton surrogate James Carville still disagrees, and suggested the scandal about Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private e-mail account and secret server would benefit Clinton’s potential presidential campaign.

    Long-time trusted Clinton confidant James Carville inadvertently admitted over the weekend on ABC's This Week that Hillary Clinton probably used a private email address and server in order to avoid Congressional oversight or scrutiny.

Media Matters, a lefty watchdog group, an arm of the Democratic Party and perpetual hater of Fox News, proudly announced the news this week in a statement. Carville will be a “reoccurring guest contributor,” according to the lefty site HuffPost.

The only person that don’t know it is the chicken.” The Democratic strategist, not known to mince his words, said in a late-night interview with CNN that Santorum “can flop around all he wants to [but] they’re not going to nominate him.”

    In an interview yesterday with Scott Hennen, former Clinton campaign manager James Carville admitted he was worried that President Obama can't dig himself out of the hole he has dug for himself and the country. He then went on to completely dismiss the candidacy of Herman Cain. Carville: "Everything worries me in this environment. Nobody's gotten elected with these kinds of numbers. So, I'm worried in the general election." When asked about the chances of Cain replacing the President, the 'serpent-headed' Carville said "Herman Cain is not going to be the president of anything.... Herman Cain is a salesman." I...

    President Obama needs to fire a lot of people. That’s the conclusion of longtime Democratic strategist and TV pundit James Carville, who unloaded on Obama Thursday for failing to change his White House team despite months of lagging poll numbers and stagnant economic indicators. “For God's sake,” Carville wrote on CNN’s web site , “why are we still looking at the same political and economic advisers that got us into this mess? It's not working.”

    Hillary, with bayonet tightly between her teeth, advanced with Chelsea beside her towards the grim genocidiers in Tuzla. Her heart beat with sanguine bravery, as she prepared to cut down the screaming, pseudo-sapient madmen standing between Yugoslavians and free health care. It was a pivotal moment for the future of dumbocracy, and it was total, unmitigated male bovine scatology. There are those who think she misspoke, others who believe she exaggerated a tad, and still others, such as myself, who thinks she could open her mouth and fertilize an entire ethanol farm without substantially raising her pulse.

Bill Richardson said Sunday he still considers himself loyal to the family that helped make his political career. Gov. Bill Richardson endorsed Sen.

    Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed. Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville — a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s — declared: “She’s behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done.” After his recent resounding wins in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., Barack Obama holds a narrow lead over Clinton in total delegates, 1,272 to 1,231, although Hillary leads in superdelegates,...

    For Democrats, things rarely get much better than this. In 2008, they’ll be running to succeed an unpopular incumbent, against an opposition that has rarely been more disorganized or dispirited. Polls show a Democratic advantage on major issues nearly across the board. Amid all these favorable signs, it’s only natural that some of the party’s top strategists would be pondering the same question: Wonder how we’ll screw it up this time? “We are a little bit of a shellshocked political party. We somehow or another always figure out a way to blow it,” Democratic strategist James Carville said. “Democrats have...

    Democratic political strategist James Carville says Al Gore will run for president in 2008, but he fell short of offering his endorsement of that possible campaign. Carville, appearing Tuesday as a guest on MSNBC’s ‘Imus in the Morning’ program, said Gore’s desire to run for political office might come, not from his Oscar win, but rather from something more primative. "Running for president is like having sex,” Carville said. "You don’t do it once and forget about it. You want to do it again. He’s run for president in ‘88, he ran for president in 2000. We know he wants...

Amid an escalating economic crisis and the Argentine legislature's recent assault on democracy, their outrage is unmistakable and thoroughly justified.

Yesterday, the Peronist Party leader was given a farcical inauguration ceremony, making him Argentina's fifth president in two weeks.</p>

(thinks he is smarter than American soldiers) Obviously Carville considers soldiers to be idiotic automatons who have no ability to think for themselves, since so many injured soldiers express their desire to win this war and to stay and fight. Like Kerry, he is arrogant, and condescendingly telling us he knows better than all of the military and the soldiers fighting this war on terror. Just like the Kerry campaign, he has no respect for the military and will insult the military and lie...
