Recent Presidential Candidate Ben Carson Turns Down Cabinet Slot, Citing Inexperience

Looks like the Secretary of Health and Human Services job could have been his. But Ben Carson said no:

Carson is reportedly not interested in serving in President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet because he doesn’t have any experience running a federal agency.

“The President-elect offered him [Carson] anything he wanted to do,” Armstrong Williams, Carson’s business manager, told Circa.

“But in the end he didn’t want anything,” Williams added. “His background didn’t prepare him to run a federal agency.”

He certainly earned the position by dropping out of the presidential race and dutifully supporting Trump, who had called him “pathological” and compared him to a child molester while they were competing for the nomination. But as the great Harry Callahan would say, a man’s got to know his limitations. Without relevant experience, how could anyone be an effective manager of a federal agency? Better to start at an entry level position, like President of the United States.

Wanted to start out as POTUS, like Trump.
