Carter-Mondale Teaming Up Again

By BRENDAN RILEY

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Former President Carter and his vice president, Walter Mondale, are teaming up again _ this time at a fundraiser to help Carter's son, Jack, in his longshot bid to oust Nevada Republican Sen. John Ensign.

"It will be a real bit of old Americana," Jack Carter said of the event scheduled Friday in Minneapolis at a private home on the Mississippi River.

While Jimmy Carter and Mondale see each other periodically, Jack Carter said it's the first time in more than 20 years that they've been together at a fundraiser. He also said his father has done few such events over the years.

Carter is challenging Ensign, who had $3.3 million in the bank at the end of June. Carter had $482,000 in cash on hand then and says he's down to about $380,00.

1. I think Jack Carter is going to win. In fact, I predict it.
It's just a hunch, but people have learned to really respect the honor, honesty, and work ethic of the Carter clan, and I think he's got a real shot. Not to mention - Jimmy is a nuclear engineer, and that issue is a big one in Nevada.

2. There's a blast from the past!
Good for them! You don't see Clinton and Gore teaming up much these days.... (not sure that's a BAD thing, tho... LOL!)

3. Fritz and Grits together again.
According to the article in the Minneapolis paper they have, unlike most running mates, remained friends and do stay in touch with each other.
