Carville Says Obama Short on ‘Cojones’

Of the comparable toughness between Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., Clinton adviser James Carville tells Newsweek: “If she gave him one of her cojones, they’d both have two.”

Classy.

(Carville also says Clinton needs to win both Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday. “The onus is on her. She’s got to do better than tie. If she wins Indiana and North Carolina, she’s the nominee. She’s got to shock the system, and she may be shocking it.”)

There sure are a lot of men around Clinton who keep throwing out gonad and gender references to imply Clinton is stronger than Obama, as if strength is an exclusively male characteristic.

A few days ago, as ABC News’ Eloise Harper reported, Paul Gibson, the president of a local steelworkers Union Chapter 6787 in Indiana, announced support for Clinton, saying it’s “going to take an individual with testicular fortitude” to deal with the nation’s problems.

In February, Jack Nicholson announced that “Hillary is the best man for the job.”

In relaying this to crowds, Clinton changed this to “real men vote for Hillary.”

Linguists are going to look back at this election as a treasure trove.
