James Carville: When Obama Clear Winner Send Check

Mica Brezinski doing a dynamite job all by herself with guests one after the other on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Yesterday, guest Chris Matthews suggested Mica should continue hosting the show and it should be renamed, Morning Mica. We agree.

Scarborough failed to ask one hard question of Hillary Clinton when she appeared on the program a day or so before the North Carolina and Indiana Primaries. Clinton touted her proposal for a gas tax holiday on the program, face to face with economic conservative Scarborough. Yet, her proposal includes raising the monies to pay for the gas tax holiday by not only taxing "windfall" profits of oil companies, but actually taking the profits over and above the amount Clinton believes the oil companies should be making.

A proposal like that is as close to socialistic as one can get without being a dictator, yet.

Scarborough said nothing about this proposal. He didn't play devil's advocate, he didn't ask her something like: Isn't that socialistic? You're going to take the profits from the oil companies because you don;t think they deserve those kind of profits?

He remained silent. It was up to Mica to ask how the program would work if the oil companies simply raised prices, or prices remained high because supply would be decreased, or stagnant due to lack of investment or drilling wells anew.

Today, Mica meets the challenge of dealing with Clinton's campaign chair, Harold Wolfson, again, asking decent questions particularly about Clinton changing the delegate goal post.

Now Clinton claims the overall delegate numbers to claim the nomination should be 2220, or some such, not the 2025 now set by national Democrat Party rules.

During one report, James Carville's recent comment was announced.

Mica couldn't help but generate a laugh over it.

CNN plays the clip too.

Of yellow dogs and Democrats
GREENVILLE — U.S. Sen. Barack Obama has likely locked up the Democratic presidential nomination, but political consultant and Clinton family adviser James Carville told about 500 people at Furman University that U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton should fight until the last dog dies.

“I still hear some dogs barking,” said Carville, the flamboyant Louisianan known as the left’s ragin’ Cajun. “I’m for Senator Clinton, but I think the great likelihood is that Obama will be the nominee.

“As soon as I determine when that is, I’ll send him a check.”

In an address peppered with his trademark sharp wit, Carville
