We all know Elvis had an interest in the "White House" and besides visiting president Nixon he also had contact with Jimmy Carter who he already knew as Governor. We all know Elvis was proud of having been there, this excerpt shows the other point of view.
"Elvis Presley was so excited about having a fellow southerner in the White House that he called President Jimmy Carter regularly. "Trouble was, Elvis was usually pretty loaded when he called," said Hamilton Jordan, Carter's chief of staff. "It got to the point that the president would just hand off the phone to me or whoever was around. Elvis never caught on." Jordan, who spoke at West Virginia University, is touring to promote his book, No Such Thing as a Bad Day, about his experience surviving three separate battles with cancer".
