Jimmy Carter was evidently a good human being--but a poor president, in my opinion.

Mitt Romney is not a Republican, in any meaningful sense of the word (even though he continues to carry an "R" next to his name); but he is really not in line with the Democrats, either. Probably the best way to describe him is to say that he is a RINO--and a transparent Trump hater.

John McCain (the late John McCain) was, in my opinion, a better man than many of my fellow conservatives credit him with having been. He was a genuine man of principle. (However, the one thing for which I have never been able to quite forgive him is his casting the deciding vote to retain ObamaCare.)

AOC, too, is principled enough; but it is really hard for me to give accolades to a socialist. (She may even be a bit to the left of Bernie Sanders; and that is particularly difficult--at least, in this country.)
