“I believe that in order to be a good leader you have to be wise. You have to know how to get things accomplished. And I’m not sure that there’s too many people running who’ve done a lot of complex things that no one else has done before. I’m not sure there’s too many people running who’ve had as much corporate experience as I’ve had, serving on Kellogg’s board for 18 years, Costco for 16 years. I’m not sure there’s too many people who’ve started a national nonprofit that is active in all 50 states and has won multiple national awards for how effective it is. And I could go on talking about the surgical career and some of the things that have been done, but my point being that you can gain experience from a variety of different ways. It doesn’t all have to be in the political sphere. And in fact, I’m sure I can name many people who’ve spent their whole lives in politics who you probably wouldn’t want solving your problems.”- Ben Carson, speaking this weekend in South Carolina.
