There is no peace in the Sudan. Especially if you're a black Christian or animist.

He's worked actively in hot spots like North Korea (brokering a nuclear freeze - our current government refuses to even sit at the table),

The treaty that North Korea signed and then didn't comply with.

The Carter Center has monitored some 50 elections worldwide, including places like the West Bank and Gaza, Venezuela....

The West Bank and Gaza had such great democracy under Arafat the dictator. And Venezuela!? They've got Castro's clone in Venezuela right now. And Chavez is now trying to export his "revolution" to Columbia, in true Sandinista/Communist fashion.

At age 81, he continues to devote his life to ideals he holds dear and works to make the world a better place.

In my opinion, he needs to stick to building houses. I don't think he was even a good president in spite of his good intentions. Good intentions don't cut it in this world. Nor do I think that he's improved any since he left office.
