Carter dropped a mention of his vote to the crowd at the Carter Center, where Sanders joined him for a discussion about global peace and human rights.

During the lengthy talk, Sanders mentioned the Unites States’ low voter turnout rates and how that tends to swing elections for conservatives. That statement struck a chord with Carter. “Can y’all see why I voted for him?” Carter said.He previously stayed mum about the 2020 election. His presidency is remembered for the events that overwhelmed it—inflation, energy crisis, war in Afghanistan, and hostages in Iran. After one term in office, voters strongly rejected Carter’s honest but gloomy outlook in favor of Ronald Reagan’s telegenic optimism. In the past two decades, however, there has been wider recognition that Carter, despite a lack of experience, confronted several huge problems with steadiness, courage, and idealism.

Wow. What a great and surprising endorsement.

Of course, Carter was years ahead of everyone -- including Al Gore -- on creating an energy independent future for our country.

Sadly, Ronald Reagan rolled over Carter in 1980, and the Carter attempt to find energy alternatives to fuel and coal died.

We are still playing catch up four decades later.
