On the face of it, that sounds insane, given all the things that did elect Carter president, starting with Watergate — that is, with our collective desire, after the implosion of Richard Nixon, for a leader who wore his morality on his cardigan, and who had an opposite set of values from those we associated not just with Nixon but with politicians in general.
