Via Atrios, James Carville gives us this illuminating insight.
The reaction of some of Mr. Clinton’s allies suggests that might have been a wise decision. “An act of betrayal,” said James Carville, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and a friend of Mr. Clinton.Let's try to work this out. According to Carville, then, that would mean Hillary Clinton is Jesus, Bill Clinton is Mary Magdalene, Obama is probably Caiaphas, the high priest (if you go with the assumption that Obama seduced Richardson away from Clinton with a promise of something). Would that make the 30 pieces of silver into the VP slot or simply a Cabinet post? Carville, I'm guessing, sees himself as someone like the apostle John in this scenario.
“Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.
But here's my real question. Who, in Carville's fevered imagination, is this?
51A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, 52he fled naked, leaving his garment behind.Joe Biden? Sorry.
