    THREE presidents?

    That would mean Jimmy Carter, right? I missed that. God, I love that man more every year.

    It's long passed time that we embrace Carter. He was a good president and now he's an even better man.

    Reagan v. Carter?

    I know where I stand and I'm not afraid to say it. The nation was never so wrong as it was when it didn't reelect Carter. Never.

    God bless Jimmy Carter.

    •  Best ex-president ever. (0+ / 0-)

      I never thought that Carter was all that good as a president, but he's the best ex-president we've ever had. Instead of consulting for bucks, he became point man for
      Habitat for Humanity
      and
      Amnesty International

    •  Carter was forced to move to the left in 1980 (0+ / 0-)

      When he was facing a tough primary challenge from Ted Kennedy (who was courting the gay vote by supporting gay rights in his platform). Even the end Carter capitulated and endorsed all the same platforms for the general election.

      I'm still proud that the Democrats took the first step by putting gay rights in the party platform in 1980.

      In fact, the occasional victory for the GOP cannot hide the fact that this country is fast heading into another era, not of two-party democracy, but a party-and-a-half system. And the GOP is the half a party- Larry Sabato
