Louisiana-born Mr. Carville, a lifelong Democrat, won the nickname “Ragin’ Cajun” for his take-no-prisoners style on the hustings. He came to national prominence in the US as lead strategist of the successful 1992 presidential campaign of then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton [it was Mr. Carville who coined that campaign's famous mantra: "it's the economy, stupid."].

Married since 1993, the political odd couple are also well-known US media personalities, both hosting and appearing as guests on numerous TV talk shows.

Between them they have also written a series bestselling books, including the jointly authored memoirs All’s Fair: Love, War and Running for President [1995] and Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home [2014

Being held at the Fairmont Southampton on September 19, the day-long BILA event is focused on the long-term outlook for Bermuda’s re/insurance industry.

Leading industry experts will be among the speakers discussing key trends and policies affecting the industry.

Non-BILA members can purchase tickets for the event here.

    I just wanted to let you know a little about your 2 speakers. I heard them a couple of years ago and it was one of the best presentations I have ever heard. One of the punch lines my associates and I talk about all the time is timeless. It is “only when he drinks.” Too funny for words. They are also very good at current polities, great perspectives. Best of luck on the conference and the luncheon…….Kind Regards
