    I would sincerely submit that Politics is too dirty for any man or woman with any degree of morality & conscience. And the good Dr has plenty of both.

    I disagree. Daniel Webster of Florida who is a godly man has been free of the corruption for more than 20 years.

    yes, if those running for office and those voting for those running would keep politics out of it, and vote for what is best in leadership......

    Many people, even if they dont admit it, tend to vote party line - and without knowing the platoform of the party or candidate.

    Dr. Carson is refreshing to listen to after so many decades of politics dominated by lawyers. Also, he makes ample use of Scripture unabashedly, which is also refreshing. He is retiring from medicine this fall so his path is open. I think that he considering what to do next.

    He was in the state Senate for 20 years and one of the most respected. Now he is in Congress. He is a very godly man as well as his very large family.
