James Carville says New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie doesn't have a chance at capturing the Republican nomination for president in 2016.

Speaking on MSNBC's "The Ed Show,"
the former top Clinton campaign strategist said, "If Chris Christie were to get Republican nominations, he would be the equivalent of Superman. They’re not going to nominate him."

Carville added, "You've got to understand who votes in the Iowa caucuses and South Carolina primaries and stuff. This is a Northeast media fantasy that they're going to nominate Chris Christie. … They're going to do no such thing."

Carville said the prospects for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to win the nomination are also slim, but it's still very early in the election cycle to be seriously discussing it.

"We tend to look pretty far into the future these days. Who knows? I think that [former] Gov. Jeb Bush would have a very difficult time getting Republican nominations. And it's just not me. I think a lot of people agree with that."
