Shhh…A Private Party at Carville’s Abode

On Wednesday night we hear that James Carville (D) and Mary Matalin (R) held court at their Old Town residence for a private discussion in preparation for their participation in the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Third Annual Political Summit, November 16th in New Orleans.

Amongst the invited guests were the Aspen Institute’s Walter Isaacson, DC political insider and pundit, Kikki McLean, NJ‘s Matt Dowd, former Michigan Gov. Blanchard, and BPC president and 2011 Capitol File Power List’s Jason Grumet. Also spotted mingling at the soiree were several potential sponsors of the event such as CNBC’s John Harwood (we hope he has finally updated his Capitol Hill press pass), Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris, and cable liberal regulars Hilary Rosen and Paul Begala. Word has it that The Daily Beast‘s John Avlon and his Republican author and wife, Margaret Hoover, have signed on.  Carville  practiced political rhetoric on the group Wednesday night before remarking yesterday on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the Obama White House needs to ‘panic’ and ‘fire, indict, fight’ to force significant changes to the strategic direction of his Administration.
