    A Look Back: Jimmy Carter's Inaugural Speech

    [CHI] A Look Back: Jimmy Carter's Inaugural Speech
    "Let us learn together and laugh together and work together and pray together, confident that in the end we will triumph together in the right." -President Carter, 1977

    On the tour promoting his latest work, Carter has been discussing hot topics including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Carter said he would consider pardoning Snowden if he was ever convicted.

    In an interview that aired last Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press, Carter said he only uses "snail mail" when communicating with other world leaders because he believes the government is spying on him. The NSA denied the allegation.

    Despite his fears of electronic communication, he reportedly sent his first text message on Wednesday night. It was a message to his grandson, Jason, a Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia.

    Carter served as president from 1977 to 1981. He received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.
