Ragin’ Cajun James Carville is Back to Cover Hillary’s Tracks

James Carville, the wily Democratic consultant who has been a close Clinton ally for more than two decades, is back on the trail to cover Hillary’s tracks.

Since Clinton announced her campaign earlier this year, Carville has made the rounds on talk shows to downplay her burgeoning email scandal.

Carville has dismissed the scandal in characteristically peppery prose, calling it "a pile of garbage" that "won’t amount to a hill of beans."

Carville was propelled into the public eye when he—along with then-Director of Communications George Stephanopoulos—ran Bill Clinton’s "War Room" in Little Rock, Ark., to defeat President George H.W. Bush in 1992.
