92. And that Democratic president nearly destroyed the Democratic Party
Bill Clinton's legacy was that he did serious damage to the Democratic Party, so yes, I would blame Carville for that if you really want to give him credit for getting Bill Clinton elected. Clinton's disastrous early policies led to the Republicans gaining a majority in the House for the first time in over 40 years and getting a majority in the Senate as well. Then he passed a whole bunch of Republican backed legislation. And then he has the whole Monica Lewinsky affair that made it impossible to get anything done for the last two years of his presidency, and harmed Al Gore's chances.
