Jimmy Carter's grandson says the former president remains in good spirits three months after entering end-of-life care at home. Jason Carter says his grandfather follows public discussion of his legacy and even enjoys regular servings of ice cream.
As a little-known Georgia governor, Jimmy Carter took his family and friends to Iowa and New Hampshire, where "the Peanut Brigade" set the modern standard for a retail campaign and helped elect Carter as the 39th president. But the long odds weren't just about 1976 for Carter, who is 98 and now receiving end-of-life care at his home in Plains, Georgia.
Political analyst and writer Jonathan Alter is out with a new and comprehensive biography of former president Jimmy Carter. It’s called His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, A Life. The narrative spans Carter’s childhood growing up in Georgia to his roles as the state’s governor and U.S. President, and beyond.
Alter joined Political Rewind to talk about the new book, sharing a historical and political perspective, as well as some lesser-known stories about the legendary peanut farmer-turned-president.
