    Good point CC.. I was going to use Carter too but assumed most wouldn’t have even remembered him.

    Thoroughly decent fella - absolutely nothing like Trump of course - but both avoided war and military confrontation and both only the 1 term.

    I was just a kid when Carter was president but I know he tried to avoid conflict.

    Before conspiracy theories became trendy I used to know an ex-military man who believed that the ill-fated Iranian hostage rescue in 1980 was sabotaged from within to make Carter look bad so he wouldn't get re-elected that year.

    Very possible Stevie..

    He was a good honest man was Carter but bad for business.

    In truth how many successful prime ministers/presidents are honest and decent..? Not many - that’s the way of this bastard world.

    Although winning by a small margin Biden will find it difficult as President when over 70.000.000 people voted for Trump splitting the country right down the middle still alot of votes to count.
    Just like the Democrat governors blocked Trump at any chance this will now happen to Biden from the Republican senators
    It will also be difficult with the Senate looking like it will remain Republican
    Trump gained alot of support from black and hispanic votes and no matter who won it was going to be a difficult
    situation when 50.5 voted Biden 47.7 voted Trump after a record turnout.
    This could be an interesting situation for the next 4 years.
