Ben Carson was my commencement speaker and I do find him to be quite an impressive man. As someone interested in pursuing a career in neurosurgery, I have a great deal of respect for the work Carson has done. He is open, honest and candid, and I think it would be great if he could put those traits to use in a career as a politician. However, I honestly cannot see myself supporting Carson as a politician because his positions on social issues are far too conservative for my taste. For being such an accomplished physician, I find that he has an appalling lack of compassion for people.
