Jimmy Carter may now be more popular than he ever was as president. The former statesman earned bipartisan praise this week after he joined Habitat for Humanity to build houses in Nashville, black eye and all.

Carter had just suffered a fall, which necessitated 14 stitches above his eyebrow. Nevertheless, he explained, “I had a No. 1 priority and that was to come to Nashville to build houses!”

Survey: 54 percent Americans support Trump impeachment inquiry

  Survey: 54 percent Americans support Trump impeachment inquiry A majority of Americans endorse House Democrats' decision to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump and his administration's dealings with Ukraine, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center. The survey, which was released on Thursday, found that 54 percent of Americans support the impeachment inquiry, while 44 percent oppose it. The figure represents a four-point increase in support from a similar survey in September. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

While America’s second favorite living president garnered praise across the aisle, some couldn’t resist throwing in a dig at the current commander in chief.

Though it is difficult to imagine an orange tuft of hair rising up from the sawhorses at a charity event, it’s interesting that Carter seems to have outlived all of his scandals. The only living president Americans love more is Barack Obama, and it helps that the media has been telling us his administration was “scandal-free.”

It’s been 38 years since Jimmy Carter was in office, and it seems that we’re finally done discussing his brief presidential legacy. George W. Bush, on the other hand, is more likely to still be going through the ringer.

When the former president sat next to Ellen DeGeneres at a Dallas Cowboys game, some onlookers (including Media Matters' Parker Molloy, who later deleted her tweet) were furious that Ellen would appear with Bush, particularly that she would — horror of horrors — laugh with him. “I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have,” she later explained.

Whether or not Americans appreciated a president’s policies in the White House, they should be able to recognize when he does something good, such as building a house, or when he does something normal, such as talking to someone with different opinions. (But maybe that’s not so normal anymore?)

It’s OK to praise good actions, whether or not you adore the character of the actor.

How not to get peace .
President Trump, Rand Paul, and others seem to think we can get peace by pulling out of places that are not yet pacified, because they imagine that people are “tired” of war. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); They could not be more terribly wrong. History — World War II for example, and “peace in our time” — should have cured them of that thinking. If you think people are tired now, think how exhausted they were in 1946.
