Carville Declares A 40 Year Victory

CNN political pundit James Carville ~guarantees~ Democrats will be America's dominant party for the next 40 years. Carville's so sure of that, it's the premise of his new book, "40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation."

Why? According to Carville, the Democratic party appeals to young voters. But are young voters the most likely to go to the polls? Weekend AM has done its homework and invited Carville to talk with T.J. Holmes Saturday morning. We've got plenty of questions. Let's see if Carville has answers. Our guarantee, count on a colorful conversation.

Here's just one excerpt from Carville's book:
"Republicans' spin is old, and their politics have failed. The shaky logic of the policies that got us into the current situation-an unprecedented financial crisis, record foreclosures, rising income inequality, growing debt, billions more dollars flowing into Iraq, and thousands of Americans dead-is wearing thin.

"The Republican Party is so divorced from reality it may take years for them to recover. They are profoundly deluded."

Watch the interview live, Saturday at 10 am EDT

    I don't know about the Democrats ruling for the next 40 years! The seeds planted by George W. & the Republicans are only now beginning to germinate and put out shoots ( in a manner of speaking ) Besides, weren't the Republicans acting like Democrats in their spending of the last 8 years...Couldn't the same thing happen to the Democrats? I think the pundits should be careful what they wish for...!

    Do you not understand the erteledious effects printing money has on the economy and people\'s savings? In turn what that does to the economy?You speak to the superficial short term effects it has on the economy. But what about the fundemental problems it causes? What about it\'s long term effects?Jeremy Siegel, I\'m sorry, you look like a loveable guy. But if your understanding of economy and economic history is this flawed you should not be teaching. Especially not at the university level.
