Carville Rages On: Quote of the Day 5/4

When I worked for James Carville a couple of years back, I was always amazed at his ability to find the perfect turn-of-phrase to fit any situation. They were sometimes crude, usually funny, and always insightful. That ability is on full display in a recent Newsweek article.

On Barack Obama's string of Superdelegate endorsements, Carville quipped,

"A superdelegate commitment and a four bucks will get you a cup of coffee at the Ritz Carlton."
He also took note of Obama's increasing vulnerability and perceived lack of toughness,
"Everything that's happened to him is not because of her. She hasn't laid much of a glove on him other than just being there."
Sen. Clinton, he argued is easily the tougher of the two candidates,
"If she gave him one of her cojones, they'd both have two."
How great is that?
