Carville's New Book Rips Clinton Campaign

James Carville has a new book coming out. Greg Sargent reports on the more juicy bits, including:

Mark Penn, Carville says, was a key factor in Hillary’s defeat, because he “suffered fatal confusion on the subject of delegates.” Carville hits Penn for reportedly not understanding that California was not a winner-take-all state, so his strategy hinged too heavily on winning it. Carville terms this a “spectacular error.”

This was the political equivalent of a surgeon amputating the wrong leg. A blunder of epic proportions. I'm shocked that Penn is able to find work now.
