James Carville: Barack Obama "Hides Under The New York Times Editorialists' Skirt"

Posted: Updated:

Clintonite James Carville appeared on "Anderson Cooper 360" Wednesday night along with Paul Begala to talk about the race between Clinton and Obama following Hillary's victory in Pennsylvania. The always colorful and quote-worthy "Mouth of the South," who earlier in the evening had appeared on Larry King Live to continue his catfight with Bill Richardson over Carville's "Judas" comment, began knocking Obama for "running away" from the Michigan and Florida delegate question, as well as the call for more debates. He then pushed the issue further by adding, "And we have big problems in this country. You can't go hide under the New York Times editorialists' skirt every time something happens and expect them to come out and do your fighting for you," he said, referring, presumably, to the Times' Wednesday editorial blaming Clinton for running a "mean, vacuous, desperate" campaign. Did Carville's "skirt" comment have some inappropriate undertones? Watch the clip and let us know what you think.
