Carville Cracks Up To 'Press'

The yolk's on Clinton political guru James Carville - who shocked everyone on "Meet the Press" Sunday morning by smashing a raw egg on his head.

The point?

To dramatize the fact that he had egg on his face after wrongly predicting that Democrat John Kerry was going to win the presidential election.

"Meet the Press" host Tim Russert and Republican strategist Mary Matalin, who is Carville's wife, jumped out of the way to keep from being drenched by the flying egg white.

Carville - known as the Ragin' Cajun for his fiery partisanship - predicted Kerry would get 52 percent of the vote and President Bush 47 percent.

That projection was really scrambled because, in the end, the final tally turned out to be eggs-actly the opposite of the eventual vote tally. (New York Post)

I have always liked James Carville and Mary Matalin as a couple. Opposites definitely do attract. They both crack me up! I respect him for admitting his prediction in the presidential election wasn't how it turned out, and that he is able to make fun of himself to make his point. Actually, Cross Fire is one of the few discussion shows on politcs that I enjoy watching - mostly because of James Carville and Carlson Tucker.
