Trivia: Jimmy Carter Sets A Record
From today’s Wisconsin State Journal
A little over a week ago, Jimmy Carter became not the oldest, but the longest-surviving former president. As of Sept. 8, Carter had survived his presidency by 11,554 days, one day more than former President Herbert Hoover.
Carter, like Hoover, has the advantage of being a one-term president, but unlike Hoover, Carter continues to add to his record.
Might I add that Jimmy Carter is one of the best examples of what life can provide after a major defeat or loss. After being voted out of the White House Carter became an international problem solver, thinker, writer. Carter has made a difference in the world, and one can only hope for many more years for this remarkable person.
