A NON-THREATENING ALTERNATIVE:

Jimmy Carter: I'd be 'comfortable' with Mitt Romney (Will Rahn, 4/25/12, The Daily Caller)

"I'd rather have a Democrat but I would be comfortable," the former president told MSNBC in a segment aired Wednesday. "I think Romney has shown in the past, in his previous years as a moderate or progressive... that he was fairly competent as a governor and also running the Olympics as you know."

Carter went on to compliment Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, as "a good solid family man and so forth." And although he said Romney has taken some "extreme right-wing positions" in order to win the GOP primary, he suggested that the former Massachusetts governor is likely something of centrist at heart.

"What he'll do in the general election, what he'll do as president I think is different," Carter said.

That's all you want in a re-election election, someone who doesn't scare the children so you don't change it from a referendum on the incumbent.
