I saw "The War Room" for the first time this past weekend.

James Carville was so passionate, he poured his heart and soul into Bill Clinton's campaign for president. I'm so used to seeing James Carville with his wife Mary Matalin make occassional appearances on Meet the Press. His wife is usually doing most of the talking/arguing and James is either trying to argue back or just sits there and letting her rattle on about her party and her man Bush. I can't understand how the hell James Carville and Mary Matalin stay married. They each believe in their politcal parties with all of their heart and soul, I wonder how they are able to keep that out of their marriage. Anyway, it was so refreshing to see him in a different light in this movie.

The most interesting thing said though was not by James Carville or a Democrat for that matter. It was something that was said by Mary Matalin. They were talking about Clinton and him not being "honest" about avoiding the draft and his "affair" with Gennifer Flowers. Mary was asked about why Clinton's past makes such a difference and she said that if he can't be honest with the American people about his past, how do we know he's going to be honest in the future. I realized that if you fast forward to this past election, her same words could have been used to describe her boss GW when the issue of his National Guard record came up.

Matelin's remark was typical of the Right's "double standard" standard.

Mary M. is a smart woman and how she continues to believe what she says about Bush is a mystery to me, especially with her being married to Carville.

Carville is a smart man, and how he can stay married to Mary M. is also a mystery to me.

I guess it goes to show that love hath no place in politics and vice versa. :wink:
