Jimmy Carter

Carter says: "It's not just George W Bush who has blood on his hands, but Tony Blair too". "Blair's made a fortune since leaving office".

IMO: Only too true.

On Carter's Presidency: "We never went to war. We never dropped a bomb. We never fired a bullet. But still we achieved our international goals. We brought peace to other people, including Egypt and Israel. We normalised relations with China, which had been non-existent for 30-something years. We brought peace between US and most of the countries in Latin America because of the Panama Canal Treaty. We formed a working relationship with the Soviet Union."

IMO: And unlike most of today's heads of state, Carter did not mulct the US funds - he now lives in a small cheapish bungalow where he lived before he became President. What a shame there are not more heads of State like Carter.
