Love & War
Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home
By Mary Matalin and James Carville
Reviewed by Paul Jablow
A therapist friend of mine reports telling this to many of his patients: "Go ahead. Try to explain whom you fall in love with. Waste my time and your money."
I doubt he has treated James Carville or Mary Matalin, separately or together. But the statement might well apply to them, perhaps America's most famous odd couple.
You might think that anytime James Carville and Mary Matalin are on the same dais or program, sparks will fly and eyes will sigh with frustration. Carville, a democrat and Matalin, a republican, have been fighting it out on televsion and in public appearances now for years.
What a lineup!
