Former President Jimmy Carter has gained a reputation for being a tad on the self-righteous side over the years. Comments he made to NBC News in an interview that aired Monday night will do little to dent that reputation.

"Primarily because of the activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center and in international affairs, and to some degree, domestic affairs, on energy conservation, on environment, and things of that kind," he said. "We're right in the midst of the constant daily debate."

While many laud Carter’s charity work, both Bush presidents and Bill Clinton have been active helping others too.
