a person that had to solve real problems and make it work rather than getting around them.

HILARY WAS ALREADY President she HANDLED her husband. I like Dr.Carson.
Political affiliation, activities and views
Carson has said he is not a member of any political party. “If I were part of one, it would be called the Logic party, and it would be dedicated to commonsense approaches we all should be able to see.” In his book America the Beautiful, Carson explained why he decided to get involved in politics: “I believe it is a very good idea for physicians, scientists, engineers, and others trained to make decisions based on facts and empirical data to get involved in the political arena and help guide our country.” He also said, “we [physicians] should be concerned not only about the health of individual patients, but also about the health of our entire society.” Despite largely expressing conservative viewpoints, Carson has also expressed some views at odds with most conservatives, such as supporting banning semi-automatic weapons in large cities. He has also stated, “There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons.”

In 2010 is wrote: "The entire concept of for profits for the insurance companies makes absolutely no sense. 'I deny that you need care and I will make more money.' This is totally ridiculous. The first thing we need to do is get rid of for profit insurance companies. We have a lack of policies and we need to make the government responsible for catastrophic health care."
Now, I interviewed a top British neurosurgeon, who was very high along the psychopathic spectrum, absolutely. He really was, and it does kind of make you a bit scared, but actually it all slots into place when you think about the characteristics that you need to be a surgeon. He said that actually when you’re operating - and he actually likened neurosurgery to the margin of error as being between two crucial capillaries in the brain as being like the margin of error for a sniper between taking a head shot between a hostage and a hostage taker. He says you need to be very focused, exactly like Dexter. You need to be ruthless. You need to be fearless. You can’t have too much empathy for what you’re doing, but, number one, you need to be decisive. A top surgeon needs to be decisive in a situation where things go wrong. They cannot dither. Whether they make the right decision or the wrong decision is kind of secondary, but they have to make a decision
