Actually, considering his deep Inside the Beltway ties, James Carville is a walking ethics problem, but Matt Stoller makes a great point:

James Carville is identified as a CNN Political Analyst, and here he is spreading conventional wisdom about Obama that is worthy of the Politico. That's fine, since that seems to be what political analysts on the TeeVee do. Carville blathers about how Obama is thin on the issues, isn't performing well as of late, etc.

What CNN doesn't mention is that Carville is also sending out fundraising solicitations for Hillary Clinton's campaign for President and is an advisor for her campaign.

This is crazy. It's just crazy. When CNN commentator Bay Buchanan took over the Tancredo campaign, she resigned from the network. This isn't exactly the same situation, but the lines are thin. Carville isn't getting money from Clinton, but there are other ways of compensation in politics and everyone knows that.
