When it comes to the GOP field for the nomination, we’ve already learned that former President Bill Clinton is a bit of a Jon Huntsman fan and was surprised at how good of a candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was (or was back in the beginning of July, at least). Now, former President Jimmy Carter is weighing in on the candidates, too, and it’s probably unsurprising that he likes former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney best of all. He did, however, tell MSNBC that he appreciates the help that he received from Bachmann, who often tells the public that she cut her political teeth on Carter’s campaign, back when she was a Democrat.
Still, Carter, much like Clinton, finds it unlikely that any of the current candidates will beat President Barack Obama in 2012, saying he’s confident Obama will be reelected.
Then again, considering how Carter did the second time around, maybe that’s not the best of omens.
