Worth his prize

I've come to feel increasing respect for Jimmy Carter even though he didn't make that great an impression on me at the time. “JB” sums it up:
And the reality is also that Carter took the proper course of action with the [Iran] hostages because all of them came home alive -- which would certainly never have occurred had Bush been in office at the time. He would have bombed the country and the hostages would have been killed. But Americans would have loved it because they love action -- especially aggressive action.
