Matalin to Carville: You Get It Everyday

Mary Matalin
got a little bit naughty with hubby James Carville on Sunday during “Meet the Press” online-only “Take Two” feature. The couple (along with Tim Russert, Mike Murphy and Bob Shrum) were making a bet on the 2008 presidential general election and here’s how it unfolded:

    MATALIN: I’m going to bet on McCain in the general

    CARVILLE: You got it. What do I get?

    MATALIN: You get it everyday. You’re living the dream.

    (LAUGHTER)

    RUSSERT: Thank God this is the Web.

Russert, Shrum, Murphy and Polling Data

From page 324 of Bob Shrum’s latest book, “No Excuses”:

    Tim Russert called me with more bad news: the second wave of exit polls was holding for Bradley. We were going to lose. What were we going to do? I could hear the excitment in his voice — not because he was against Gore but because he loves a good political fight.”

Back in 2000, Howie Kurtz also reported that Russert gave polling data to McCain strategist Mike Murphy.

You could see the gang all together on yesterday’s “Meet the Press.”

    Comedian Marc Maron and Ana Marie Cox, the Washington editor for Time.com, co-hosted the show with The Washington Post’s Shalaigh Murray, Republican political strategist Mike Murphy and “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver as guests.

    “We’re testing it as a TV show and will take what we did here and cut it into a pilot presention,” said Minassian, who has a first-look deal with HBO.
