RIP Rosalynn Carter
« on: November 27, 2023, 06:14:41 PM »
Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter passed away a few days ago, before her Husband former President Carter, who is in hospice care.
They were both wonderful and beloved by the American people. May she rest in peace.  :saint:

Quote

"Fiercely loyal and compassionate as well as politically astute, Rosalynn Carter prided herself on being an activist first lady, and no one doubted her behind-the-scenes influence. When her role in a highly publicized Cabinet shakeup became known, she was forced to declare publicly, “I am not running the government.”

Many presidential aides insisted that her political instincts were better than her husband’s — they often enlisted her support for a project before they discussed it with the president. Her iron will, contrasted with her outwardly shy demeanor and a soft Southern accent, inspired Washington reporters to call her “the Steel Magnolia.”

My guess the Carter’s will be better remembered as the best ex-President and First Lady of the post war period.
