GOOD IN A PINCH Carville

All signs point to veteran Democratic pit bull James Carville joining up with Hillary Clinton's campaign in Iowa during her final primary push, a source close with Carville tells Radar.

Calls to Clinton campaign and Carville's office were not returned as of post time, and it is not known whether or not the move is official, but with Carville ghosting around Iowa, it's not far-fetched to speculate that the Clinton campaign could be panic mode.

"Carville is so savvy that it's good news for Hillary that he's on-board for Iowa," said Bill Beaman of Politics magazine. "It's an indication that she's more vulnerable in Iowa right now than she'd hoped to be, but I think it's more about bringing out all your best guns than it is about panic. Especially in the wake of Benazir Bhutto's assassination, when Clinton's 'experience' theme is suddenly trumping Obama's 'change' theme, Carville's help could turn out to be part of solidifying a lead rather than a sign of panic over losing it."
