NEW ORLEANS – Two of the
nation's foremost political commentators, James Carville and Mary Matalin, will
present the plenary session, “All’s Fair: Love, War and Politics,” at 12:10
p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center as part of the
American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference and Exhibition in New
Their session offers an
entertaining look at today’s political issues as well as a behind-the-scenes
look at politics inside Washington and how today’s headlines are playing out
around the country. In addition to this plenary session, Carville and Matalin
will lead an extended Q&A session in the exhibit hall at 12:45 p.m.
Carville and Matalin are key
players on the national political stage—they each have over 30 years of
experience in politics and have individually worked for Presidents Ronald
Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Matalin served as
President George Bush's campaign manager in 1992, while her soon-to-be husband,
Carville, was President Bill Clinton's campaign manager. Now they share their
political opinions and affiliations—which haven't merged despite being
married—with audiences everywhere and provide analysis of today's hot-button
political issues from both sides of the political aisle.
