7. They always complained when Jesse Jackson did that, too.
Jackson went into Beirut, Iraq (twice) and I don't even remember where else, and every time the Republicans would accuse him of meddling and grandstanding and trying to find a camera (the usual slanders). Then each time when he got them released--which was darned impressive in Iraq, since both times we were on the verge of invading--the Republicans said they were secretly pulling for him but hadn't wanted to jinx it by publicly supporting him.

Way to go, President Carter. My hero worship of the man is reaffirmed constantly.
