A Carville shot across Obama’s bow?

Byline: | Category: 2008 Presidential Election | Posted at: Saturday, 29 March 2008

Read James Carville’s essay in the Washington Post today ending with this passage:

Because if loyalty is one virtue, another is straight talk. And if Democrats can’t handle that, they’re going to have a hard time handling a Republican nominee who is seeking the presidency with that as his slogan.

Tell me if you don’t come away with the feeling that Carville’s ”between the lines” message is that he is part of the 19 percent.

    It isn’t hard to imagine that Carville realizes that stripped of partisan issues, the Dems have the weakest slate of presidential candidates in half a century. Even McGovern, on qualifications, was better than either of these two. But this is almost certainly just a warning, rather than a statement of his possible vote, For someone who has made his career as a partisan’s partisan, I can’t imagine him, even in the privacy of the voting booth, pulling the “R” lever. Besides, Diebold might tell on him.
