Carville says 'great likelihood' Obama will be nominated, but 'still hears some dogs barking'
Longtime Clinton associate James Carville admitted in a speech in South Carolina that the Democratic presidential race is all but over, but the colorful Democratic strategist suggested that Hillary Clinton "should fight until the last dog dies," according to The State.
John O'Connor reports for the South Carolina paper: "I still hear some dogs barking,Ē said Carville, the flamboyant Louisianan known as the leftís raginí Cajun. ďIím for Senator Clinton, but I think the great likelihood is that Obama will be the nominee.
ďAs soon as I determine when that is, Iíll send him a check.Ē
The Moderate Voice's Joe Gandelman on Carville's remarks: "The skinny bald-headed man has sung."
This isn't the first time that Carville has referred to barking dogs in the Democratic primary race. In January, the conservative Newsbusters blog noted another Carville "canine analogy."
"And he's like any politician that's been hit, you know, it's a hit dog that barks, and we're going to see a lot of barking from Senator Obama," Carville had told Larry King on CNN.
