James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr.
Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer who was elected as Governor of Georgia in 1971. A well-meaning public official, I don't think he was ready for prime-time in politics when he was elected President in 1976.
His contributions to the welfare of his fellows on this planet... through Habitat for Humanity and his peace efforts... earned him the Nobel Peace Price in 2002.
He's been fairly critical of presidential administrations, both Republican and Democrat, in his later years.
