FILE - In this April 5, 2013, file photo former President Jimmy Carter gets ready to hit a giant bell during his visit to the famed Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, In the first 200 years of the republic, just three ex-presidents survived more than two decades after leaving office: John Adams, Martin Van Buren and Herbert Hoover. The odds have improved since then: Jimmy Carter, the longest-serving ex-president, has blown past 32 years out of office and shows no signs of stopping at age 88. George H.W. Bush, 89, passed the two-decade mark this year. The two most recent former presidents, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, both are going strong. (AP Photo/Khin Maung Win, File) less
