The James Carville watch: He's close to conceding

May 13, 2008 | 10:17 am

James Carville's fierce commitment to Hillary Clinton's presidential quest has led him to utter some of this campaign season's most memorable quotes (see here and here). But at heart, Carville remains more seasoned political operative than polemist, and he has joined others in seeing the writing on the wall for Clinton.

"I think the great likelihood is that (Barack) Obama will be the nominee," he said during an appearance at Furman University in South Carolina.

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

More on what he had to say is available here.
