<p>Talking to longtime Democratic strategist and Clinton operative James Carville on Monday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, co-host Matt Lauer fretted that Donald Trump visiting the flood zone in Louisiana could give him an edge in the presidential race: <strong>&ldquo;He goes down there, looks at the damage first hand, talks to people, before President Obama. It wasn&rsquo;t until after his visit that Hillary Clinton picked up the phone, called the governor there. Did he appear more presidential in the wake of that tragedy than Hillary Clinton?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Carville tried to excuse the absence of the Democratic leaders: &ldquo;I think the timeline is, is that she and the Governor spoke. The Governor has said that he would prefer that people come later because they have &ndash; particularly the President comes.&rdquo; He added: &ldquo;I&rsquo;m sure the President is gonna come on Tuesday. But here&rsquo;s one thing everybody agrees on down there, the federal response has been really good.&rdquo;</p>
