A Political Family - The Carvilles

One of my favorite political consultant/pundits is James Carville. He is one of the most colorful, and one of the most successful, political strategists of our lifetime. He is, of course, married to Republican political consultant Mary Matalin. They met during the 1992 Presidential campaign, as they were running opposing presidential campaigns.

James holds a law degree from LSU and is an ex-Marine. He now lives with his family in New Orleans and he teaches political science at Tulane University. Some of his more humorous quotes include, " Wars is like an affairs, they're easy to get into and hard to get out of." And, "I was against gay marriage until I realized I didn't have to have one."

James, at age 65, has worked as a political consultant around the world, including for heads of state in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. Now an actor, commentator, attorney, media personality, and liberal pundit, as well as professor, James has gained a reputation for his toughness, directness, honesty, and intellect. He is a pleasure to follow....a character of our time.
