Presidents and the Constitution: Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter's presidency was marked by the triumph of the Camp David peace accords and the tragedy of the Iranian hostage crisis.

Carter discusses those events, plus the energy crisis and his battle to win Senate ratification of the Panama Canal treaties, in an interview with NPR's Cokie Roberts. It's the second of a series of conversations with three former presidents about the Constitution.

(Recorded as part of a WHYY series featuring conversations with former U.S. presidents.)
