Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Known for his acerbic, take-no-prisoners style, Democratic political consultant and pundit Carville (Take it Back) does not pull punches in this aggressive manifesto. Surveying the political landscape, the bull-headed liberal finds the right pursuing "ridiculous positions" and "pontificating on silly-ass things that have been decided a long time ago" like global warming, WMD in Iraq, abstinence-based education, and rumors of Obama's secret Muslim heritage. Despite its provocative packaging, and some obvious recycling (yes, Bill O'Reilly and Fox News get a thorough rebuke), Carville has a serious message and some compelling analysis. Examining the demographics in the last election and the Bush administration's record, Carville concludes that the Democrats will easily defeat the opposition for years to come. A lead campaign strategist for both of Bill Clinton's presidential campaigns, Carville has plenty to say regarding Hillary Clinton's failed presidential run (though he's careful to note that she's the politician "I admire the most"). He also believes that if Pres. Obama follows the path set by Bill Clinton, enacting "solid, sensible policies," Americans will accept him as "the Real Deal." Pitched squarely in the southpaw strike zone, Carville hasn't mixed up his standard delivery, but he should find a larger audience of moderates than he has in recent years.

From Booklist

The election of Obama in 2008 was partly due to a shift in American demographics that will favor the Democrats for the next 40 years, proclaims Democratic political advisor Carville. American voters are younger and more ethnically and racially diverse, a trend that favors Democrats. The old canard that young Democrats are prone to switch parties as they age and pay taxes doesn’t stand up against data showing a drop in Republican vote share. Republicans have sealed their current fate by persisting in ignoring the political middle and appealing to their ultraconservative base. Carville points to failed policies of the Bush administration and Republican philosophies: a reputation for fiscal conservatism ruined by record deficits to pay for the war in Iraq, the failure of tax policies favoring the wealthy and corporations to improve the economy, and the horrifying reality of an unresponsive government in the face of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation of New Orleans. What the Democrats have in their favor is demographics, techno-communications savvy, and the activism of grassroots supporters. Carville argues that contrary to the myth that Republicans are better on the economy, Democrats have more often delivered strong economies while providing needed social programs. The big challenge for Obama and future Democratic political efforts will be to restore confidence in government. He suggests emphasis on accountability and a “progressive patriotism” with broad appeal to Americans. --Vanessa Bush --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

After the 2014 midterm elections (last night) I thought back to when this book came out. I enjoy reading punditry on both sides of the aisle, and James Carville can be amusing, but I gave this one star because it's not just wrong, it's amateur. Predicting a 40-year Democrat dynasty just a year after the election of Barack Obama puts Carville (an supposed political veteran because of his effectiveness marketing Clinton back in the 90s) into the same league as the rest of the 3-ring circus of glassy-eyed loons who became catastrophically enamored with the historic nature of his election.

Many of the demographic observations made are true, and nobody refutes that. America has been changing for a very long time. The crucial failing in this book is that it assumes that identity politics can fully replace sound governance, and that ideals will fill in the gaps for Democrats as they attempt to lead America in a globalized world.

Wrong on all counts. As history has shown (just six years later) electing high-minded amateurs into national office is much easier than leading. The same glassy-eyed loons that prompted the writing this book are now turning 30, living with their parents, and have yet to find a decent job - and could care less about the small-ball identity politics that Carville thought would usher in a 40-year dynasty. I guess everyone has a breaking point - and this dynasty found it in six years.

This book was written 4 years ago and accurately predicted how the GOP would respond to the 2008 election . There is no doubt the GOP has lost all contact with reality and honor.
Thank you James Craville for telling it like it is.

This is a well written book, and makes a lot of sense. To the person who commented on the title about "Rule", have you even bothered to read the book? No, you have not. I find it disturbing and immature that someone would give a book 2 stars based on the title without actually reading it. Isn't this review section for people who actually have read books and put thoughtful insight into them?

Anyhow, it's a well thought out book using logic, statistics, and plain and simple facts based on demographics and the change in the culture of this Country.

It's a very good read!

Found this for a dime last weekend at a garage sale - Hilarious and uproaring as the next 40 years have been already interrupted by many years of republicans gaining everywhere.

As a Republican - I have always appreciated Carville because he is so telegraphic and motivational to conservatives - in his book he shows us what some are thinking behind the curtain.

To be sure, I am a conservative and not a republican. Every 4 years Americans hold a presidential election. Somebody wins and somebody loses. That's life. 2008 was an anomaly. The election of President Barack Obama is about something far bigger than four or even eight years in the White House. It is thought that the Democratic party majority will last for 40 years. Democratic victories in 2004, 2006, and in 2008 make the argument for why Democrats are going to keep winning..Thus says James Carville in this book. I find Mr Carville to be entertaining when I see him of TV and I usually do not agree with him...Keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer....I enjoyed reading this book.

Some of the material is "dated", as you might expect, since it was written some time ago. But, Carville's "down home" wisdom and insight is both entertaining and revealing. I think that conservatism is the best foil for progressive's to wrestle with and will bring the best ideas from the debate for most political and cultural outlooks for us a nation. What seems to be the problem and continues to stop this great debate and exchange of ideas, is extreme positions on both sides of the middle, to over-use this literal metric. Any extreme position, either left or right (seems to be happening more on the right these days - when was the last time ANY progressive mutated into "Angela Davis" clone?) accompanied by a unwillingness to compromise, is a recipe for what we have today: a paralysis in government and too much name calling. Grow up, be patriotic, and work something out! Carlille's book helps you get started.

This is the second book that I have read from Mr. Carville. I respect his brutal honesty. It was another gripping read. The book was written a few years back, and brought back many memories, and also shed light on recent past events that helped me change my views. Mr. Carville does not filter, nor dumb down his thoughts or opinions. Very respectable man, and very talented author. It is written just as you could imagine him saying directly to you. I highly recommend this book.

Fireplace starter now. When he published this book, I could not believe the nerve of him to even attempt to say the democraps would rule for 40 years. I think we can safely say after the totally failed presidency of their god Obama and the elections of 2014.
He had some real hubris to publish this book and this book is just wishful thinking.
