Weinberg freshman Amy Weiss said the College Democrats achieved their goal of exciting students with Carville 's speech.

"I 've been a big James Carville fan for several years, " she said. "And I 've been at school, so I feel so out of touch with current events. I feel I 'd be interested in anything he 'd talk about. "

But it 's not all about party spirit, Carville said.

Democrats need to bring their causes together and work for them actively, he said. For example, the political consultant suggested taking the specific issue of racial affirmative action and helping those of all races with income-based affirmative action.

If Democrats try to single out every issue, they 're back to litany, Carville said. He also said Democrats just can 't say "no " to causes from gay rights to abortion to the poor.

"Sometimes the problem with being a Democrat is being a Democrat, " he said.
