Is Ben Carson a good pick to be Trump’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development? Vote in our CBC reader poll!
Dr. Carson would be great in any position, especially as Secretary of HUD. Giuliani would be an excellent Secretary of State. Anyone but Romney!

Ben Carson has good common sense which is lacking in both Demos and Republicans so he will be a plus in anything he takes on.

Just read that Petraeus is anti-gun and has joined with Mark Kelly husband of

I think Ben Carson would be good at anything he tries. Only Ben knows if he wants to be the HUD official.
Yes, an excellent choice. Her will be an asset to all of the other cabinet members. A real Team player!

He will be able to help these people on how to do a better job with their children, also. He will figure out what needs to be done in the areas that have fallen apart.

That is a decision for Trump and Carson to make. Over the last 8 years, everyone thinks they are an expert. Time to remove the ‘opinions’ and let the qualified politicans make the decisions. Obama being a ‘Community Organizer’ needed all the hell he could find.
Ben Carson should be Surgeon General. He is best qualified in the medical field as a surgeon ; NOT HUD!!! The position is an insult to his educational background.

I THINK BEN CARSON WOULD BE A GREAT PERSON FOR THE JOB. HE IS A GOOD MORAL MAN WITH GOOD LEADERSHIP ABIL;ITIES. AMERICA NEEDS GOOD MEN TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. I JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP DOES NOT TAKE MITT ROMNEY. HE DOES NOT FIT IN WITH THE REST OF THE GROUP. MITT ROMNEY CANNOT BE TRUSTED. THEIR ARE PLENTY OF OTHER GOOD MEN THAT CAN BE CHOOSEN OVER MITT ROMNEY.

He is such a fine, intelligent man, I feel we need him somewhere. Don’t know if this is the best place or not, but we need his wisdom and Christian attitude in our government!

A great man for the job. We need more Ben Carsons.

If he and Trump agree

Carson ASKED for HUD instead of Surgeon General, because he has an interest in improving our inner cities. Great, but I wonder if he has any idea what a SNAKE-PIT the bureaucracy at HUD can be. As far as I can tell from his bio, Carson has never MANAGED anything bigger than a surgical team — quite a jump from 30,000 bureaucrats with varying objectives, almost all of whom will chew up and spit out any Secretary who doesn’t let them do their thing — whatever that may be. If Carson wants it and Trump says yes, I wish him well, but I’ve SEEN HUD destroy good people and I’d hate to see it again. Shirley Wiseman can be a big help, but still…
To some people, Surgeon General would be the obvious choice. But I think that would be too limiting for a man like Dr Carson. He is a genius in so many areas. So I have to agree that Secretary of HUD would be a good choice for him.

Carson is a surgeon and by making him Secretary of Housing would be boring to him. He would be more valuable as Surgeon General.
November 26, 2016,2:00 pm
Great choice … America is looking forward to the CHANGE!

Dr. Carson, I will come and help. I was DAS for Single Family, FHA Commissioner/Assistant Sec. in the Reagan Administration. I would be happy to come for your time there. I was the 1st woman President of the National Association of Home Builders. I am a builder and qualified. The good Reagan years. Shirley Wiseman

Is good for that

I hope he will be o.k. as Secretary odf Housing and Urban Development, but perhaps he would be better as surgeon general.
