Via Tribune reporter Mike Memoli on Twitter comes a colorful line from Democratic strategist James Carville:
“If Hillary gave up one of her balls and gave it to Obama, he’d have two.”
Carville presumably made the quip at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast where he was speaking this morning. But he’s actually made a similar point before.
Speaking to Newsweek back during the 2008 campaign, in an article about Obama’s relative political toughness compared to Clinton, Carville said: “If she gave him one of her cojones, they’d both have two.”
(Politico also wrote about Memoli’s tweet.)
