I'm watching an interview -- the second I've seen this week. First was with Tim Russert; this one is with Jay Leno.
He's such a delight -- speaking honestly about his career, particularly about why he's become such a prolific writer since leaving the White House. He's just published his 19th book and says he had to write to pay off his debt. He was deeply in debt after being "involuntarily retired," as he put it.
He also speaks sweetly and with all good humor about his wife, Roselyn, to whom he has been married 58 years (can you believe that! He just recently celebrated his 80th birthday).
The new book is called "Sharing Good Times." I look forward to reading it. Maybe I'll get it for myself for Christmas.
And I've put Mr. Carter on my list of people I'd most like to meet in this lifetime.
