James Carville says, “80% of Democrats don’t have a clue about political reality”

James Carville is a Democratic political consultant, a scary looking, Skeletal being with a voice like fingernails on a chalkboard, he’s either very honest, absolutely very arrogant and during the Clinton Administration, Carville was their pit bull or resident junkyard dog.

Known as the “Ragin Cajun” he is married to Republican political consultant Mary Matlin. She served in the Reagan Administration, was campaign director for President George H.W. Bush and was an assistant to President George W. Bush as counselor to Vice President, Dick Cheney.
