The most important news
President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden visited former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter at their home in Plains, Ga. On Thursday on the 100th day of her tenure. Presidential Library Jimmy Carter posted a photo of the visit and presidential historian Michael Bechloss posted it on social media Monday evening.
Due to a combination of photo perspective, cabinet size and age – Jimmy Carter is 96, Rosalynn Carter is 93 – it looks like the Bidens are looming over slightly miniaturized versions of the Carters, perhaps in an oversized dollhouse. Not that the Bidens are particularly young. In a video filmed for the Democratic National Convention last summer, Carter – president from 1977 to 1981 – called Biden “my first and most effective supporter in the Senate” as well as “my staunch and devoted friend.” (Biden, 78, was just 29 when he was first elected to the Senate in 1972.)
