This paper examines the character and presidency of Jimmy Carter. First, the author gives a background to the election. Then Carter's personal values and qualities are described. Some of the major events of Carter's tenure as president are presented. The author emphasizes Carter's strong religious convictions as being the basis for his morally-based leadership. This paper attempts to examine Carter's leadership not for what he accomplished while in office but rather for the man and his values. Several of Carter's books are cited, which deal with both foreign and domestic policy. The paper concludes with a biographical sketch of Carter's life and explanations for his failure to be re-elected.
