When Jimmy Carter offers guidance, any leader would be wise to pay attention. As just one example, Jimmy advised Yasser Arafat, and he remained a president for over ten years!

From the Associated Press:

Former President Jimmy Carter has some advice for Barack Obama as he gears up for the 2012 election: Don’t alienate voters with controversial positions.

The Georgia Democrat told The Associated Press on Tuesday that just about everything he did alienated voters, from sealing a treaty to hand over the Panama Canal to establishing diplomatic ties with China.

Carter said: “If your main goal is to get re-elected, avoid a controversial subject as much as you can in the first term.”

And most importantly, if you want a second term, don’t say things during your first term that might bring back memories of the “malaise speech.”

What? Oh, nevermind…
