    are perfectly happy to distinguish between private behavior and public principles, and I'd guess that they're like that.  Women especially seem to be inclined to accept the notion that all that really matters is how a partner treats them and their families... I don't buy it, because I strongly believe that people's worldviews do matter, a lot, in terms of how they treat outsiders and deal with the vagaries of life.  Or, at the very least, it matters when raising children and teaching them how to move through society.

    But since this is a purely professional thing for Carville and Matalin, I imagine it's more like a game-- they do well (and as a bonus, one of them will always be doing well regardless of which party is in power) and aren't likely to have to suffer much from the implementation of opposing ideological principles.

    Democrats always act as though they're afraid they'll lose, so people look at them and see losers. -Paul Waldman
