Agreed.

- Carter served two terms as a Georgia State Senator, and a term as Governor of Georgia.

- GHW Bush served two terms in the House of Representatives, was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was chairman of the Republican National Committee, was chief of the U.S. Liason Office to the People's Republic of China (effectively serving as ambassador), was director of the CIA, and was Reagan's vice-president.

- GW Bush had run (unsuccesfully) for a U.S. House seat, was an advisor on his father's presidential campaigns, and won two terms as Governor of Texas (though he left that office midway through his second term when he was elected president).
