I’m agreeing with you a lot this evening. If Trump is the nominee, he could never pick a veep without governing experience. Not Carson, not Fiorina.
Unfortunately, although Dr Carson is an honorable decent man with great ability and character, 0bama has ginned up such racial animus, he has destroyed the chance for any black candidate other than himself, certainly anyone who is not an extreme far leftist crypto communist.
I see a place for Ben Carson in any 2016 Republican administration. A likely position would be Surgeon General.
