The War Room

Comments (9)

Think back to 1992.  “It’s the economy, stupid!”  Amy and I watched The War Room tonight, the brilliant documentary of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and the organization behind it, spearheaded by James Carville and George Stephanopoulos.  Carville’s quote was actually “the economy, stupid” and was part of a haiku that Carville came up with.

Change vs. more of the same
The economy, stupid
Don’t forget health care.

Carville is an absolute genius and unbelievably entertaining as a special bonus feature.  I’d team up with that dude any day just for the laughs.  Stephanopoulos reminded me of Sam Seaborn which – it turns out – was intentional.

    I have watched the War Room many times. It has many great lessons in leadership. It should be a part of any management course.

    You have to imagine that Bruno Gianelli (West Wing) is partly based on Carville also.

    After the 2004 election, Carville was on one of the Sunday morning talk shows and literally broke an egg on his bald head to demonstrate the egg on his face regarding his incorrect predictions.
