You see, it's different for James Carville.
He can hope the president fails, and it's OK. He claims now that he later retracted the comment, after the 9/11 attacks.
Big deal. That's part of that "New Morality" of the Democrats. No king's X, there, Jimbo. Judging from the way in which you and your other "operatives" did everything you could to undermine Bush, 9/11 did not keep your moral compasses aligned for long.
Here is the Carville has a hissy fit article.
Note that Carville does not address the liberal elitist blather that shows just how contemptuous he and his pal Greenberg are for what the voters think:
"We rush into these focus groups with these doubts that people have about him, and I'm wanting them to turn against him," Greenberg admitted.
The pollster added with a chuckle of disbelief: "They don't want him to fail. I mean, they think it matters if the president of the United States fails."
