• Jimmy Carter Kind of Sorta Endorses Mitt Romney

    At this point, we're getting kind of used to Mitt Romney receiving the tepid, unenthusiastic approval of prominent conservatives. That's getting a little bit played out.

    So, just to mix things up and make things a little more interesting, how about some tepid, unenthusiastic approval from a prominent liberal?

    "I think President Obama will be reelected," said Carter. "I think of all the Republican candidates who were prominent, I think Romney would be the one that I would rather see have the slight possibility to be president."

    "You'd be comfortable with a Romney presidency," Jansing followed up.

    "I'd rather have a Democrat," said Carter. "But I'd be comfortable. I think Romney has shown in the past in his previous years as a moderate — a progressive — that he was fairly competent as a governor and also running the Olympics."

    That seems about as glowing a recommendation as we're likely to see from either side of the aisle.
