I don’t get back to town much. As I get older, the drive to the airport in El Paso to get to Tulsa seems longer and longer.He has the Rhodes thing, that makes him a legitimate choice at much higher schools than would be possible based on OU alone. I have no idea whether his aspirations extend beyond being a university president. He seems to get bored easily, though.
The last time I was in town, an acquaintance posited to one of my classmates that Carson appears to be positioning himself to run for President. He is quietly gaining experience in the various government functions that come up on the campaign trail. Military, education, government management, finance, foreign policy, alternative energy, gender rights, minority rights, etc. Seemed far fetched but kids should dream.
