Jimmy Carter: A Profile in Public Service

Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains is a remarkable glimpse into the life of public service. Reviews of the film have been lukewarm. Not enough action for some. For me, it is an intelligent, and unexpectedly inspiring documentary.

In "Democracy Now's" headlines today: "former President Jimmy Carter has appeared to give his endorsement to Senator Barack Obama. Speaking to reporters in Nigeria, Carter noted that Obama has the support of Carter’s home state of Georgia, his hometown of Plains, and his children and grandchildren. Carter continued, 'As a superdelegate, I would not disclose who I am rooting for, but I leave you to make that guess.'”
