       A large crowd at Georgia Southern University's Hanner Fieldhouse Wednesday night got a few laughs out of two polar political opposites who just happen to be married.
       James Carville and Mary Matalin, renowned political commentators and strategists, both visited GSU to share insight on today's economy, political issues and how they maintain their marriage that is coming up on 18 years.
       Carville is a devout Democrat, a political consultant who ran Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign and includes former Georgia governor Zell Miller on his list of clients.
       Matalin, a Republican, is a political strategist with CNN and was deputy campaign manager for George H. Bush in 1992. She and Carville met and began dating during the battle between Bush and Clinton.
