"I think he's gonna run," James Carville told Don Imus Tuesday morning of former Vice President Gore's potential presidential ambitions.

Appearing as a guest on "Imus in the Morning" on radio and MSNBC, the former Clinton strategist said: "Running for president is like sex, Don. You don't do it once and forget about it."

This is not the first time that Carville has offered his prediction about Gore, or uttered his line about sex, but it is likely to receive additional attention in the wake of Gore's high-profile Sunday appearance during the 79th Annual Academy Awards.

Carville also weighed in on the presidential bid of former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., saying, "He likes people, knows how to relate to them," and added, "I am impressed with this guy's political skill."

Carville expressed his support for Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., but said that it would be "difficult" for her to win the Democratic nomination.

As for the man for whom he once worked, Carville said, "Bill Clinton is the most popular human being on Earth," and referred to himself as a "Shiite Clintonite."
