But the nation’s 39th president said that approach might not work as well, if Republicans go from the minority to the majority in either the Senate or House of Representatives. He said it could also end up leading to less of a logjam on Capitol Hill.

“If they, maybe, gain control, … they’ll have to show some responsibility, so that Obama will will have an opponent with whom he can debate with some degree of rationality,” Carter said.

Carter praised Obama for doing “an extraordinary job” despite numerous challenges, including an environment in which most every move he made, even if it had once been championed by Republicans, faced immediate opposition.
