Hey, the way I see it, somebody had to be the Jimmy Carter of Presidents, and it might as well have been Jimmy Carter, seeing as how he already had the name. Though, sometimes I do get the feeling that Barack Obama is trying to steal the title from him.
Anyway, here's the original Jimmy Carter of Presidents telling Big Think what he (big) thinks his big(think)gest failure was…
"You ought not to ever let American hostages be held for 444 days in a foreign country without extracting them."
How many fathers have given that exact same advice to their children on their graduation days? If only Jimmy Carter's father had been one of them.
