    It's true, but it is far worse than just bribes.

    It is when truly intelligent people like Carter who aren't zealously anti-government anti-media anti-wealthy anti-anybodyelsehavinganymodicumofpower say it.

    It is indeed. He's a big thinker too and has held the highest office. Quite a statement by a man who is not just trying to bait and gain popularity

    He's telling me something I've known for years, but good on him. He literally has nothing to gain by saying that.

    Typically smart, substance-filled response, Anung.

    Carter (in the very short piece):

    "Somebody’s who's already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who's just a challenger."
