Obama Not White Enough for Jimmy Carter?

Jimmy Carter has told the London newspaper The Guardian that he would not favor an Obama-Clinton dream ticket:

"I think it would be the worst mistake that could be made. That would just accumulate the negative aspects of both candidates. Because of Bill Clinton's elements of unpopularity, I have been against Hillary. It shows up in all the public opionion polls. I think her negatives are about 50%. If you take that 50% who just don't want to vote for a Clinton and add it to whatever element there might be who don't think Obama is white enough or old enough or experienced enough or because he's got a middle name that sounds Arab, you could have the worst of both worlds."
