Am currently reading Peter G. Bourne’s excellent “Jimmy Carter” biography. What’s most interesting is the way this guy came out of nowhere to win the Democratic nomination in 1976. And here’s an interesting one: Did you know that, in Georgia, when he ran for governor in 1970, HE was regarded as the more racist of the two candidates? He was even even endorsed by George Wallace in 1976!
Having said that, it should be stated that Carter personally was never a racist. Just his voters!
Good book, and fascinating in the detail as to how Jimmy Who? turned a party on its head.
