Jimmy Carter is Literally Saving the World

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Can you believe Jimmy Carter was President? Of the United States of Deadlocked Congress, nonetheless? In this interview from the Tuesday's airing of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart Carter describes how in just 27 years the 3.5 million cases of extremely painful guinea worm have been eradicated (It was in Asia and Africa). He's pretty modest about his involvement, but President Carter was the leader of the organization that did this.

Let's find a medical problem in this country that can be easily eradicated with knowledge and simple behavior changes and eradicate that problem in less than 30 years. I'd like to see a president who could do that.
