In case you weren’t at Georgia Southern this past week, I’ll tell you about the presentation Mary Matalin and James Carville did for us — the students. I say in case you weren’t here because Hanner was packed with people from the community, students, professors and donaters. The two took the stage after the VP of Student Affairs Dr. Thompson introduced them with her flare of comedy in a referee uniform.

The couple is known for their strong and very different views. I was most intrigued by how they would react in the same room. Matalin made plenty of jokes tied back to her husband. Carville made plenty of jokes tied to just about anything. They talked about bouncing ideas off eachother and their kids. If I didn’t know better I would think these two were very similar.

Matalin and Carville even came with the same objective — to provide an informational and entertaining experience for the students. The thing that they discussed which impacted me most was Carville’s look on civil duties. I will be the first to admit that I do not feel like I do much for my country on a daily basis. Carville described how getting a college education is a great way for me to do a civil service because I am increasing my job opportunities.

Bottom line is that the presentation had me listening intently the entire time. But don’t worry. This video will give those who missed out a brief taste of our experience.
