Political Consultant Mary Matalin Plays Not My Job

Play associated audio

In September we played the Not My Job game with James Carville, a laconic, Cajun from Louisiana and lifelong Democrat. And now we play the game with his exact opposite — a high-intensity Chicagoan and lifelong Republican named Mary Matalin. The best part is: they're married. Matalin, a political consultant, has just co-authored a memoir with her husband called Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home.

Matalin's quiz is called "If I ever made an error, I would regret it." It's a new year, which is always a good time to look back on the mistakes made in the prior year. We're going to ask her about the best media errors of 2013, as collected by Poynter Institute.
