Mary Matalin’s pull-no-punches discussion is informed by a career spent in the trenches as a political strategist and a trusted advisor to America’s most powerful conservative leaders.

One of the country’s foremost conservative political strategists and commentators, Mary Matalin is admired for her astute insights, intellectual integrity and her straight-talking, no-nonsense take on the hot-button issues and political headlines of the day. Matalin is a political veteran who served as deputy campaign manager on President George H. W. Bush’s 1992 re-election bid and who was later assistant to President George W. Bush and counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney. Matalin is a frequent guest on many of the network and cable news shows where she brings her outspoken views on Congress, the Obama Administration and the future of the Republican Party. She is the co-author of All’s Fair: Love, War, and Running for President, a national best seller written with her husband, noted political commentator, James Carville.  In their second joint memoir, Love and War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home (January 2014), Carville and Matalin take a look at how they—and America—have changed in the last two decades. In their two distinct voices, they pick up their story from the end of the 1992 Presidential campaign to their new life in New Orleans today where their efforts to rebuild and promote that city have become a central part of their lives—and a poignant metaphor for moving the nation forward.  Matalin is also the author of the national best-seller, Letters to My Daughters, co-starred on HBO's critically acclaimed series, K Street, produced by George Clooney, co-host of the nationally-syndicated Both Sides Now radio program and Editor-in-Chief for Threshold Editions, a conservative publishing division of Simon & Schuster.
