American Experience

The Presidents: Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter's story is one of the greatest dramas in American politics. In 1980, he was overwhelmingly voted out of office in a humiliating defeat. Over the subsequent two decades, he became one of the most admired statesmen and humanitarians in America and the world. "Jimmy Carter" traces his rapid ascent in politics, dramatic fall from grace and unexpected resurrection.
