You may recall that a couple of years ago President Barack Obama reached out to claim a piece of the Reagan legacy. TIME even declared that 44 had a "bromance" with the Gipper. How sweet.
Just a couple of weeks ago, President Obama was buoyed by Bill Clinton's fiery, crowd-winning speech at the DNC. But now with several U.S. embassies besieged or breached in recent days, it's the memory of Jimmy Carter's presidency that's sticking to our present commander-in-chief.
