PAR FOR THE COURSE: Jimmy Carter leaves Cuba without jailed US contractor.

Former President Jimmy Carter left Cuba on Wednesday without gaining the release of a U.S. government contractor jailed the past 16 months, a deflating end to what was otherwise a groundbreaking visit.

Carter spent hours talking about improving ties with brothers Raul and Fidel Castro, describing the latter as an “old friend.”

Jeez. And we probably have decades of similar stuff to look forward to once Barack Obama is an ex-president.

Much more on Carter’s beclownment here.
