"You may or may not remember that on the reviewing stand at the convention, after I clearly defeated Senator Kennedy 2-to-1, he refused to shake my hand, ostentatiously, and made it clear to his supporters that he was not supporting me. So, you know, that was a situation that I think, I hope was unique in American Democratic politics. And I don't have any doubt, at this point, that no matter who wins at the Democratic convention, that the other candidate and all of the Democratic delegates will fully support the one who is finally chosen."

Carter also spoke about his intent not to endorse any candidate until the Democratic election, the Olympics, and his work abroad.
