you can have bill clinton

apparently, folks in this country can't think too far back in their memories- hence the bill clinton/ronald reagan worship of a large chunk of the population. if i am going to think of someone who would be my hero- a model for people to emulate- it would be james carter. yep.

"Our country for the first time in my life time has abandoned the basic principle of human rights," Carter said. "We've said that the Geneva Conventions do not apply to those people in Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo, and we've said we can torture prisoners and deprive them of an accusation of a crime to which they are accused."

Carter also said President Bush creates his own definition of human rights."

Those who folly over the frolics and freaks will only become the fodder themselves.

Thanks, Betmo. I like Jimmy Carter. He was probably the truest Christian of ALL our Presidents. He is a kind, compassionate, caring, merciful, and generous person. For that, American historians have labeled him as 'weak'. What a sad, sad commentary to American morals.
