James Carville

The political pundit and consultant is widely credited with helping Bill Clinton win the 1992 presidential election, but he wasn't always so focused. In fact, Carville, 69, initially flunked out of college.

He later went back to earn his bachelor's degree before going on to graduate from law school. Carville has said that he found his razor-sharp focus for politics because of its fast-paced and ever-changing nature. In 2007, Carville was a featured guest at the CHADD (Children and Adults With Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) 20th Anniversary Hall of Fame Conference.
