In the post-US Civil War South, carpetbaggers were Northerners who moved to the South to take advantage of the unstable social, financial, and political climate. They were called "carpetbaggers" to imply that they were such poor, transient characters that they merely moved south carrying all their possessions in a carpet-bag. A carpet-bag, by the way, isn't a bag for carrying carpet, but a soft-sided suitcase or satchel made out of carpet.

Today, the phrase refers to someone who moves to a new location for opportunistic reasons.
Hillary is a carpet bagger.

1. One who is somewhere they do not belong.
2. One who moved South after the Civil War to get rich. They take over all jobs, land, money, offices, and tell everyone how to live.
3. My neighbors. See "soccer mom" and "yuppie."
The carpet baggers say we can't say "black" anymore because it's PC.

Carpetbaggers have a long history. The first Carpetbaggers came to the South from Yankee states after the Civil War to make a quick buck. Later Carpetbaggers moved to the South in the 1970s when the big 3 automakers in Detroit started to fail. Modern-day Carpetbaggers primarily move to 5 cities in Texas (El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas) to escape the wretched economic prospects of their home states (usually California and Yankee states). They will take jobs from Texans and are generally ungrateful bastards, frequently calling Texans rednecks and complaining about how it sucks here as compared to their squathole in Mexifornia or New England. If Texas sucks so much, then why are you here?
The most famous modern-day Carpetbagger is Joseph Stack, the guy who rammed his plane into the IRS building in Austin.

Get out of Texas, carpetbagger!
