The War Room

Nov 23, 2005

Think back to 1992.  “It’s the economy, stupid!”  Amy and I watched The War Room tonight, the brilliant documentary of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and the organization behind it, spearheaded by James Carville and George Stephanopoulos.  Carville’s quote was actually “the economy, stupid” and was part of a haiku that Carville came up with.

Change vs. more of the same
The economy, stupid
Don’t forget health care.

Carville is an absolute genius and unbelievably entertaining as a special bonus feature.  I’d team up with that dude any day just for the laughs.  Stephanopoulos reminded me of Sam Seaborn which – it turns out – was intentional.
