Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville on Wednesday told Democrats to “put the razor blades and Ambien back in the medicine cabinet” because former Vice President Joe Biden is going to win the election.
“The first thing is, every Democrat, just put the razor blades and Ambien back in the medicine cabinet. We’re going to be fine,” Carville said on MSNBC. “My dear friend Gov. Whitmer said Michigan is a red mirage. Pennsylvania looks really good. I think a big surprise is Georgia. Steve Kornacki did a really good job telling people what’s out. So I– look, I hoped we would know earlier than we did. I think we’re going to be just fine. I’m very optimistic.”
Carville stressed the need for patience while votes are counted.
“I’ve been talking all night. People are rerunning the numbers. And we just have to hang in there, and we’re going to win this thing. I promise you. But just, you know, stay up the night, watch the returns,” said Carville. “We’re doing a good job. I’ll be able to crack it open, maybe not tonight, but I will crack that little puppy open before this is over.”

Biden is currently within striking distance of becoming the 46th president of the United States. With Wisconsin and Michigan called in his favor, Biden has 253 of the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.
Most political pundits anticipate that Biden will also ultimately emerge victorious in Arizona and Nevada, which would add 6 and 11 Electoral College votes to his tally respectively, handing him 270 Electoral college votes, and with them, the presidency.
