Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home by Mary MatalinFor twenty years, James Carville and Mary Matalin have held the mantle of the nation’s most politically opposed, ideologically mismatched, and intensely opinionated couple. In this follow-up to their groundbreaking All’s Fair: Love, War, and Running for President, Carville and Matalin take a look at how they—and America—have changed in the last two decades. If nothing else, this new collaboration proves that after twenty years of marriage they can still manage to agree on a few things.
Love & War traces, in their two distinct voices, James and Mary’s story from the end of the 1992 presidential campaign—where he managed Bill Clinton’s electoral triumph while she suffered defeat as George H. W. Bush’s key strategist—till now. Mary focuses on issues of family, faith, and foreign enemies and offers insights from her kitchen table as well as the White House Cabinet Room, while James’s concentration is politics and love—the triumphant and troubled Clinton era, George W. Bush’s complicated presidency, the election of Barack Obama, the rise of the corrosive partisanship that dominates political life in Washington today, and the overriding abiding romance he holds for his native Louisiana and his wife and children. Together, the Carville-Matalins reflect on raising two daughters in the pressure cooker of the nation’s capital, and their momentous 2008 decision to leave D.C. and move their family to New Orleans. Post-Katrina, James and Mary’s efforts to rebuild and promote that city have become a central part of their lives—and a poignant metaphor for moving the nation forward.
A fascinating look at the last two decades in American politics and an intimate, quick-witted primer on grown-up relationships and values, Love & War provides unprecedented insight into one of our nation’s most intriguing and powerful couples. With their natural charm and sharp intelligence, Carville and Matalin have written undoubtedly the most spirited memoir of the year.

Ambassador to Finland, moderated a wide-ranging discussion, which allowed for both frothy humor and deep dives into current events and the electoral map. As arguably the most famous politically mismatched couple—George and Kellyanne Conway not withstanding—Matalin and Carville reflected on the major conflicts that have arisen in their 25 years of marriage, which began with a first date of vodka and French fries. Though their love and affection for each other was readily apparent onstage, neither of them, especially Matalin, pulled punches when debating politics and policy, eliciting occasional gasps from the packed-to-capacity audience. Rather than intelligently parse the differences between modern American Democratic Socialism and the scary hammer-and-sickle variety, Carville instead went on an unprompted rant against the newly elected renegades of the Democratic Party, slamming by implication Rep. This went on and on, allowing Matalin to win both the argument and the audience, and leaving progressives out in the cold.
James Carville and Mary Matalin, whose improbable marriage has now lasted 23 years, agree on at least two things: they love each other and they love business jets. The couple met in while Matalin was deputy director for President George H. Matalin, who recently changed her party registration from Republican to Libertarian, spent many years as a strategist with the Republican National Committee, served under President Ronald Reagan, and was an adviser to President George W.
