Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode we look back at arguably the greatest ex-Presidency in the history of our Republic.  It has been said that no one has done more good , for more people, in more places throughout the world than Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalyn Carter have done through the efforts of their Carter Center.  In this episode we look back at many of the ways they have been contributing in their life after the White House. 

We will also get a look into the term the President spent in the White House in an unprecedented way. He kept a daily diary. Several years ago he published it, without any alterations. He left it just as he found it. 

It was blunt. 

Here we will listen in as CBS News Correspondent Leslie Stahl talks with him about the diary and his rather blunt opinions of Ted Kennedy. Ronald Reagan, and several congress people he served with. 

This is an interesting episode that ends with a look at the President as he enters Hospice Care in this final chapter of his life. 

Just a note, this episode was intended to be the Season 10 finale but after some further thought we added two more episodes, one on the President teaching Sunday School and one that features a spotlight on the First Lady Rosalyn Carter.
