Most Advanced President: Jimmy Carter

There is something interesting at about Willie Nelson and Jimmy Carter. Here are some choice bits:

While Carter was in the White House from 1977 until 1981, Nelson occasionally slept over. The two would discuss music and politics, and then Nelson would slip away to smoke pot on the roof....

The former president also half-jokingly credits Nelson's music with helping him govern. "When I was in trouble in the White House or when I wanted to have some deep thoughts, I had a very high quality hi-fi player, and the number one thing I played was Willie Nelson songs," Carter says. "All the good things I did as president, all the mistakes I made -- you can blame half of that on Willie."
