I don't know that former President Carter and I would agree on much politically, but I've always been impressed with his grace and sincerity. Politics aside, he's probably one of the most intelligent Presidents to serve. He's a former Navy man, serving with the Nuclear program at its infancy.
"I just thought I had a few weeks left, but I was surprisingly at ease. I've had a wonderful life," the 90-year-old Carter said. "It's in God's hands. I'll be prepared for anything that comes."
He's certainly a man who acts as he speaks, and his post-presidency's humanitarian efforts are without equal. At 90 and battling cancer, he's talking about finally "slowing-down". Wow.
