Carter Speaks Highly of John Edwards
by John Patric
But he didn't endorse him for President. What he said was:
"I can say without equivocation that no one who is running for president has presented anywhere near as comprehensive and accurate a prediction of what our country ought to do in the field of environmental quality, in the field of health care for those who are not presently insured, for those who struggle with poverty."
That's what you call some high praise. President Carter tried to get the country started on alternative energy way back in the late 70's. Think of the grief we'd have missed by becoming less dependent on Middle Eastern oil.
I doubt this "almost" endorsement moves any polls or voters into the Edwards camp, but it's good to have the backing of a widely-respected elder known for vision and decency.
