Well with the election over and a relatively young new face in Democratic President Elect Barack Obama proposing change for the country and inspiring folks, it is time to reflect...
Mary Matalin, famed American political strategist and conservative consultant, also has a fresh look. The GOP strategist was an assistant to President Bush and advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney until 2003. She is married to Democratic political consultant James Carville, and the power couple have since departed the Beltway and moved back to native New Orleans in Cajun Country. After watching on TV what seemed like a never-ending presidential campaign, it became apparent to me Matalin's face was looking rejuvenated and somewhat fuller than before. Photo credit: Slate.com
Perhaps she may have undergone soft tissue filler or fat injections to help provide volume to her cheeks with the ever so possible help of a nicely done nip and tuck (eyelid lift and/or facelift). Hard to tell more as her hairstyle hides where any incisions would be placed. The more recent photo from 2008 on the right when Matalin was on "Meet the Press".
In any case, Matalin is sharp as a tack and her appearance reflects that. Now maybe the rest of the Republican party needs a facelift.
