SARASOTA - One of the nation's top political couples is buying into the Sarasota real estate market.

James Carville and Mary Matalin recently bought two condos downtown, spending more than $1.6 million. The couple currently lives full time in New Orleans.

They're best known for their work electing political candidates and their frequent appearances on political news shows, where they often share their opposing views.

Carville worked for the Clinton presidential campaign in the 1992 election, while Matalin worked for presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

    Ought to be an interesting mix to Sarasota.... The Republican (****) of Florida. Carville will notice an interesting undertone of Democratic common sense, especially in the part of town they've purchased in. And Matalin will notice that, on the surface, this town is Republican (****), or (****) to some people, anyway, but that the cool people Still just want to grab a cup of coffee or a drink downtown and not play politics :-)
