Stickin' : the case for loyalty by James Carville( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's been said that if you want a friend in Washington, you should buy a dog. Unfortunately, there's some truth to that: there are few places in the world where the turncoats and careerists are so highly rewarded and where loyalty is equated with stupidity. Luckily, another bit of wisdom about the Beltway is also true: the people in Washington aren't like the ones in the rest of the country. The American people treasure loyalty. They stick by a friend when he needs them. They forgive him when he's wrong. They understand the difference between politics and friendship. They are true to their ideals and their schools, loyal to their families and their God. In Stickin', the always colorful and insightful political strategist James Carville, who has been accused of being loyal, examines this much-maligned and misunderstood political good. Along the way, he looks at loyalty in the family and among friends, in theory and in practice. He praises some loyal people and skewers some deserving backstabbers. And, of course, it wouldn't be a Carville book if he didn't provide recipes for some good home cooking

We're still right, they're still wrong : the Democrats' case for 2016 by James Carville( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every politico and pundit has tried to explain the 2016 presidential race, but James Carville - the multiple best-selling Ragin' Cajun and grand strategist of Bill Clinton's rise to the White House - has largely stayed silent. Until now. "He straddled the punch bowl, dropped his pants, and whipped out his member, which, he assured everyone, was very large. Then Donald Trump pissed right into the punch of the Republican Party." So begins We're Still Right, They're Still Wrong- with that image of Donald Trump defiling the celebration that should've been the GOP Establishment's easy march to the White House. In We're Still Right, They're Still Wrong, Carville updates his #1 New York Times bestseller from 1996, the campaign tract that Bill Clinton once credited for his re-election. Carville skewers the GOP's dumpster fire of a record over the past twenty years, and argues that Trump is the living manifestation of a failed party. From income inequality to race relations, Carville believes that Democratic Party is not only the dominant party of the past, but of America's future, too - and he makes the case in his uncensored and earthy style. Among other things, We're Still Right, They're Still Wrong features a hot take on the Clinton e-mail "scandal," a story about Carville's momma' schooling a pair of crawfish mongers, a lecture on political panics called "The Anatomy of Bullshit," and a recipe for how to grill your (non-existent) Trump Steak. And wit and sharp tongue aside, Carville turns it all into the most cogent and thoughtful analysis of the 2016 and how the Democrats can--and must--be victorious"--

Mr. Conservative : Goldwater on Goldwater( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater's tumultuous election year, as well as other years in a career that encompassed numerous political and ideological triumphs. Though he never achieved the ultimate prize, the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 vindicated the conservative agenda Goldwater had long championed. Ironically, in later years, Goldwater's support of issues like abortion and gay rights were diametrically opposed to those of the "new conservative" leadership, underscoring both the distance the country has traveled in the last 40 years, as well as the dogged independence Goldwater embodied up to his death in 1998

K Street( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tommy Flannegan (John Slattery) accepts a job offer for James Carville to prep Gov. Howard Dean for the September 9 Democratic Presidential Debate in Baltimore, a choice that upsets Mary Matalin and Maggie Morris (Mary McCormack)--they worry that it will cause a rift with some of the firm's other clients. Democratic consultant Paul Begala helps Carville and Flannegan prep the candidate at the St. Regis, while Maggie visits with clients (including Senators Don Nickles and Rick Santorum) and tries to ensure them that Carville is not representing the firm in this case. Flannegan and Carville do some spin doctoring at Morgan State University while Mary and Maggie watch the debate with friends at Mary's house. Gov. Dean's joke about Trent Lott (suggested earlier by Carville) gets a big laugh, much to the displeasure of Matalin. Maggie has a cell phone conversation with her boyfriend--he can't meet up with her that evening. The next day, Mary and James interview job applicant Francisco Dupré (Roger G. Smith), who was seen earlier having his shoes polished, getting a manicure and haircut, choosing ties, and greeting Howard Dean at the debate. Dupré comes recommended by an investor in the firm. (The favor is 'a must-hire, not an "interview our daughter,"' Mary observes.) Suave and somewhat ingratiating, Francisco invites the couple to join him at an upcoming Branford Marsalis concert. James thinks the applicant is 'bizarre' but Mary offers that he may just be 'too good to be true'", viewed Sept. 29, 2004
Love & war : twenty years, three presidents, two daughters & one Louisiana home by James Carville( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"For twenty years, James Carville and Mary Matalin have held the mantle of the nation's most politically opposed, ideologically mismatched, and intensely opinionated couple. In this follow-up to their groundbreaking All's Fair : Love, War, and Running for President, Carville and Matalin take a look at how they--and America--have changed in the last two decades. If nothing else, this new collaboration proves that after twenty years of marriage they can still manage to agree on a few things. Love & War traces, in their two distinct voices, James and Mary's story from the end of the 1992 presidential campaign--where he managed Bill Clinton's electoral triumph while she suffered defeat as George H.W. Bush's key strategist--till now. Mary focuses on issues of family, faith, and foreign enemies and offers insights from her kitchen table as well as the White House Cabinet Room, while James's concentration is politics and love--the triumphant and troubled Clinton era, George W. Bush's complicated presidency, the election of Barack Obama, the rise of the corrosive partisanship that dominates political life in Washington today, and the overriding abiding romance he holds for his native Louisiana and his wife and children. Together, the Carville-Matalins reflect on raising two daughters in the pressure cooker of the nation's capital, and their momentous 2008 decision to leave D.C. and move their family to New Orleans. Post-Katrina, James and Mary's efforts to rebuild and promote that city have become a central part of their lives--and a poignant metaphor for moving the nation forward. A fascinating look at the last two decades in American politics and an intimate, quick-witted primer on grown-up relationships and values, Love & War provides unprecedented insight into one of our nation's most intriguing and powerful couples. With their natural charm and sharp intelligence, Carville and Matalin have written undoubtedly the most spirited memoir of the year"--
