John McCain quipped yesterday that Barack Obama is “running for Jimmy Carter’s second term.” I can’t imagine that most people under the age of 40 are old enough to remember what Carter’s first term was like. It was done 28 years ago. For my kids, it’s as vivid as Calvin Coolidge’s first term.
Of course, I remember Carter’s sad presidency as if it were only yesterday…and I imagine McCain does, too. Can’t remember where I left the car keys, though.
