As of today, James Earl Carter has defeated Herbert Clark Hoover in the competition of "Longest Presidential Retirement".

Congrats Jimmy!

I imagine hyphenation, for both spouses, as a sort of custom would very quickly make us all sound like a bunch of bizarrely named English aristocrats. If Peter Flynn marries Beatrice Mendez and has a kid named Anthony, who in turn marries Alice Glazowski-Chanut, their kid would be named Colin Mendez-Flynn-Glazowski-Chanut, who would then marry Beth Harper-Zhang-Rothman-Wald, and their kid would be named...

Nah.  Hoover was fairly harmless, even beneficial once out of office.  The most harmful ex-president has to be John Tyler, the only ex-president to be a traitor to the United States and support its enemies in a time of war.

Presumably he was referring to Carter's criticisms of Israel.

Carter may not be the worst president, but he is hands down the worst of the past 50 years (or even since WWII) by any objective standard.

Carter was a terrible President.  He was not suited for the job.  But his Presidency was less harmful to this country than that of Gerald Ford.
