Carville Predicts Third Party Candidate in 2012

Tuesday, 09 Aug 2011 11:43 PM

Former Clinton adviser and TV pundit James Carville predicts that 2012 may see a strong three-way race for president – and one of the most “tumultuous” elections in US history.

For sheer unpredictability, the 2012 campaign may top them all, says James Carville.

“This is going to be the most tumultuous thing you can imagine,’’ Carville said in an interview Tuesday with the Los Angeles Times. “I wouldn’t be surprised if anything happens.’’

The presidential race is ripe for a third-party entrant, Carville said. “Damn right.’’ And he is anticipating major turnover in Congress.

“Look at the volatility out there!’’

Carville didn’t offer a guess as to the identity of a third-party presidential candidate. And reelecting Obama won’t be easy, given the poor economy, Carville said.

“It’s tough,’’ he said. But Democrats have one advantage. They’re squaring off against a Republican “brand’’ that has taken a “megahit,’’ he said.
