Key Words: James Carville is ‘scared to death’ the Democratic presidential hopefuls won’t fulfill their ‘one moral imperative’

James Carville’s famed Clinton-era catch phrase “It’s the economy, stupid,” was meant to serve as a constant reminder to the 1992 presidential campaign he managed to center its appeal to voters on the premise that widespread economic dissatisfaction would be remedied under the leadership of Bill Clinton.

Twenty-eight years later, with Carville again issuing impassioned appeals to Democratic hopefuls and their teams — notably, this week, in fiery interviews with MSNBC and Vox, capped at week’s end by an op-ed in the Financial Times — the word stupid is back on the tip of his tongue.

That’s because Democrats, he suggested, are on the verge of squandering — through poorly run campaigns or an ill-chosen candidate but, even more so, through the issues they opt to discuss and not discuss — a strong chance to knock off an incumbent who is historically unpopular outside his own party. “I am scared to death,” Carville confessed on MSNBC, decked out in the regalia of two institutions of which he is an alumnus, LSU and the Marine Corps.

Here’s why he imbues the prospective goof-ups with so such significance, even though he himself has no role with any of the 11 currently active Democratic presidential campaigns (though he has endorsed Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado):

‘We have one moral imperative, and that’s to beat Donald Trump.’

“We’re losing our damned minds,” he went on to aver in his conversation with Vox, recalling that the Democrats just over a year ago prevailed, with notably high turnout producing wide winning margins, in the 2018 midterms by talking “about everything we needed to talk about, and we won.”

“We didn’t get distracted, and we didn’t get deflected.”
