45. answer: it depends....
Carter is respected and well loved here today because of who and what he is today. While arguably the same man during the 1970s, he was certainly not as effective as president as he is today. That's the important distinction, and suggesting that he would be unfairly excoriated by DUers is classic misdirection.

The answer is that it would depend on Mr. Carter.

We might ask the same question about Al Gore, or any number of other democratic party politicians, who were lackluster in office or during campaigns but who went on to exemplary service records later. Their performance at the time is what merits criticism or praise.
