That was a few days ago. He's already back to building houses. At 92 freaking years old.

I will be sad when he's gone. He may not have been the best President we've ever had, but I would vote him without hesitation as the best ex-President in history. He might even become the first ex-President to live to be 100.

Although this is an unpopular view, I still have GREAT admiration for Carter because he was one of the most honest POTUSes I think we have ever had -- and I think that it has been WAY too long since we have had a POTUS who was even remotely honest.

When Carter dies, I know I will be sad -- and I cannot say that about any other of the current living POTUSes.

Being from the U.K. I have very little idea of how good or bad the Carter administration was for Americans and the U.S.
Like a lot of people, if I think of him, I think of the failed rescue attempt of the American hostages held in Iran, but I don't hold him responsible for that debacle.
It's also the escapades of his brother, Billy Carter, that come to mind, something about Libya, but I can't remember what, and his doomed attempt at brewing Billy beer, plus his Federal tax troubles.
I first became aware of Jimmy Carter on my very first trip to the U.S. in bicentennial year 1976.
My then girlfriend and I were staying in a hotel in Manhattan, N.Y.C., and we rarely watched the TV in the room, but I can still recall hearing a commercial that I think opened with a floppy haired, smiling, crinkly eyed guy with a Southern accent, saying, "Hi, (although it sounded like Hahy), mah name's Jimmy Carter, an' ahm runnin' fer President."
My girlfriend was Polish, and she looked at the screen, and said, "Kto to jest?" (Who's that?).

Hmmm.... Nice.

Although Carter was one of our worst presidents, I will be sad when he dies. Whether or not one likes someone has nothing to do with empathy--to the humane among us.

Jimmy Carter is set to become the longest-lived [former] U.S. president, having fortuitously bypassed the scourge of pancreatic cancer that devastated his family. His dad and all of his siblings--two sisters and a brother--died of the disease. And his mother's breast cancer recurred and spread to other organs, including the pancreas.

...and without the dementia that afflicted Ford and Reagan.

I have to agree with you.

I remember thinking to myself when Reagan won his first term, "Well, there goes the country..."

Great man, mediocre president, a true statesman, hard working ex-president, and a man who truly embodies Christian ideals.
