Ragin’ Cajun: The Many Faces of James Carville

Speaker Series NY

On April 22, 2013, the Georgetown University Lecture Fund will present a lecture by James Carville, one of America’s leading Democratic political strategists. Carville, who has garnered national and international acclaim for his campaign work for Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and more, will soon be bringing his Southern swagger to ICC Auditorium.

To help prepare for Carville’s fiery antics at the event, here are some of the many faces of this famous, feisty, New Orleans strategist:

This is James Carville:


He loves politics and pointing. Here he is on Meet the Press:


And here he is on Fox News giving a salute. How patriotic!


Sometimes politics make him angry…

…but other times he is very happy, as he is here with Bill Clinton.


In fact, he was this happy when Slick Willy won the presidency in ’92!


Carville, a native Louisianan, loves New Orleans.


And when we say he loves New Orleans, we mean he loves New Orleans.


Married to Republican political strategist, Mary Matalin, you could say Carville’s a simple family guy.


In fact, he’s even been on Family Guy!


And Saturday Night Live … Wait a second. That’s just an impersonation on Weekend Update. Silly Bill Hader, tricks are for kids!


Or maybe even Lord of the Rings?

Regardless, Carville is a big name in American politics — almost like a Founding Father!


And even though we can’t explain this …carvilbeth

… we still think he’s a pretty cool guy. We can’t wait to see him on the Hilltop next week!
