James Carville has been at the center of many dramatic Democratic political victories in recent decades. Often called the "Ragin' Cajun" for his animated debating style and home-state roots, Carville earned undergraduate and law degrees from Louisiana State University, then worked as a litigator at a Baton Rouge law firm. He emerged on the national scene after his consulting firm, Carville and Begala, helped elect Bill Clinton president in 1992. Now a political contributor for CNN, Carville has authored several books, including All’s Fair: Love, War, and Running for President, written with his wife and favorite debate partner, Mary Matalin.
