Mr. Carville mentioned Ms. Palin, the GOP pick for vice president in 2008, while describing his willingness to back whoever presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden chooses as his running mate.
“And it should be pre-cleared with every Democrat in this country, every Independent, every Never Trumper. That’s good. Throw the switch, let’s go to post,” Mr. Carville continued.
Mr. Biden has said he will pick a running mate by August 1. Candidates being considered include Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California, among others.
“Deal with it Democrats, you’re going to win,” Mr. Carville added.
Mr. Carville, 75, has previously served on Democratic campaigns include former President Bill Clinton’s first bid for the White House in 1992, as well as his wife Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 campaign for the party’s presidential nomination.
Ms. Palin, 56, ran as the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008 under late Sen. John McCain of Arizona. The general election that November was ultimately won by former President Barack Obama, whose running mate at the time was Mr. Biden.
