One can only hope that those who continue to revere Jimmy Carter as a model ex-president ? when he has been perhaps the worst ex-president in American history, far worse in fact than were his policies as president ? will read this about a former colleague resigning from the Carter Center because of the ex-president’s new book. My favorite quote:

Aside from the one-sided nature of the book, meant to provoke, there are recollections cited from meetings where I was the third person in the room, and my notes of those meetings show little similarity to points claimed in the book. Being a former President does not give one a unique privilege to invent information or to unpack it with cuts, deftly slanted to provide a particular outlook.
