The idiocy of wise men

I am moderately irritated by Jimmy Carter's remarks here. His fears that an Obama/Clinton ticket would be voted against by all the people who cannot stand either of them depends both on the assumption that they are not mostly the same people anyway, and also on a view of American politics that is all about personalities and not even a bit about issues.

Also, in a staggering example of Old White Straight Guy identity politics, he advocates Sam Nunn for Vice-President.

Sam Nunn? The man who knifed Bill Clinton in the back to keep those gays out of the US military?

I really think not.
