President Jimmy Carter to Delta Passengers: Hi

Onboard a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., last Thursday, former President Jimmy Carter – who was en route to a funeral for former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski – greeted every passenger with a handshake and a smile.

“His enthusiasm was authentic and humble, in a way that made things feel less heavy for a moment,” said passenger James Parker Sheffield.

The situation was captured on social media and quickly went viral.

I'm sure not every person who shook President Carter's hand agreed with his politics, but did so anyway out of respect for the office. I just wonder if Bush 43 would be afforded such a cordial response.

Technically, he could run again. Theoretically, he would have won last November.
