James Carville Says He Hopes Palin Runs in 2012; Says She is Always a "Potential Train Wreck" - Video 11/16/09
Here is video of Larry King Live last night where a panel discussed Sarah Palin and her new book tour for "Going Rogue."
James Carville said he thought her first interview with Oprah went well, and that "she served notice on the Republican Party" that she is a serious player for the 2012 Nomination. Carville said she has some real support out there, and the Republicans will "have to deal with her."
S.E. Cupp, conservative columnist, said Palin is "unstoppable," and that Oprah really missed a chance to discuss things of substance with Palin. Instead, Cupp said Oprah sought to marginalize her by asking mostly about "tawdry" things - Bristol's pregnancy, Levi Johnston, etc.
S.E. Cupp said the mainstream media has decided to try and trivialize and "sexualize" young, attractive, conservative women. That comment set off a firestorm on the program. The Democrats on the panel said Palin "sexualized herself" by "winking" and posing for a provocative photo for a "Runner's" magazine that wound up as the cover of Newsweek. Carville said she has brought it on herself.
Carville said he hopes she runs because everytime she speaks or appears she is a "potential train wreck."
