Publisher's Summary

Former US President Jimmy Carter and US Senator James Jeffors on this edition of Fresh Air. Jimmy Carter's the author of a number of books including a memoir about his boyhood, An Hour Before Daylight. His latest is a memoir, Christmas in Plains. Carter and his family has spent the last 48 Christmases in Plains, through out his Navy career, his stint as Governor and his tenure as President. The only exception was 1979 when American hostages were being held in Iran. Vermont Senator James Jeffords shocked his fellow Republicans last May when he defected from the party and became an Independent. Stating that he could no longer reconcile his beliefs with the party, he switched allegiances. In doing so, he deprived the Republicans of their trifecta: control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. He explains how he came to make the decision in the new book, My Declaration of Independence. (Broadcast Date: December 5, 2001)
