The Case for Carter

‘Carter was a good man, but a poor leader. Smart but not a savvy politician. Someone not up to the job.’

“decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development.”

Anwar Sadat, Jimmy Carter and Menachem Begin at the Camp David Accords Signing Ceremony, September 17, 1978
