The blind leading the blind!

Former President and former "worst US president of all time" Jimmy Carter offers some election year advice to his successor at number one Barack Obama!

The Georgia Democrat told The Associated Press on Tuesday that just about everything he did alienated voters, from sealing a treaty to hand over the Panama Canal to establishing diplomatic ties with China.
