I also think (hope) that he'll make 2016.

 

So.... February 29, 2016 just for the fun of it. Not only is it Leap Day, but it's also the last day of the month (he was born on the first day of the month).

Good thing you clarified who the other one was there.

By announcing the facts, I think his family are preparing us all for a sooner rather than later scenario.

 

October 31st 2015.

I think the fact that his next birthday is very close may give him a temporary boost, but that might be about it. I'm guessing he will last until 4Q2015.

According to the BBC earlier, it was metastasized liver cancer. If so, he wont be troubling the Drop Forty next year, because he won't make the starting line.

Really sad that this dreadful news is confirmed. He is 91 years old and on the face of it there is little hope he will be cured either in the short or medium term. These treatments cost many tens of thousands of Dollars and beyond the initial surgery I don't think he will put himself through the chemo treatments hell. More mindful that others more needy will better use these treatments for many years of potential cured remission. I guess he will only go for palliative pain care only from here on.

 

November 5th.

 

If he makes 2016 then he is the bolted on number one on the list.

That makes me incredibly sad. He is a good man, probably even too good for the presidency, so people called him weak against Iran, and against his own democratic Congress. America probably didn't like that he was a true man of peace, or that he is one of the few remaining liberal evangelists. After all, in the 80s, U.S. evangelicals took a hart turn to the right, so ideologically, Carter has always been a little alone ever since. But he demanded the turn away from fossil fuels 30 years in advance.

Anyway, I also think it's a question of when, not if. That said, U.S. healthcare is pretty good at the top level. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is also still alive, not to mention Dick Cheney. If Carter wants to, the doctors can probably drag his body into 2016. But whether he wants to, that's the question.

True; he won't see 90 days if that's the case.

Someone on another site mentioned that Carter probably gave heads-up so that Obama can already plan a presidential funeral, which made me think... wouldn't it be in the spirit of political compromise and also good for the taxpayers to euthanise Bush Sr. at the same time, so that there can be a two-in-one presidential funeral?

I'll go with October 12th 2015. No particular reason just that was the first date that came to mind.

With excellent healthcare and with being elderly(which means cell division slows down) I would say he has a fair chance of living another 5 or so months.I think it will be close either way though.
