5. Carter is not known for not fighting for his ideas
Edited on Thu Dec-01-11 11:08 PM by karynnj
He actually was a highly principled man, who did not triangulate or give in - even when the odds were against him. I didn't always agree with him, but it wasn't because he didn't fight, it was that he was too conservative. As to Obama, he has won a hell of lot more than could be expected given the implacable opposition.

Rather a negative post on 2 Democratic Presidents - and so early in your posting.
