In an interview this morning with CNN, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson indicated that he might be open to being Donald Trump's vice presidential pick.
"Dr. Carson, would you be willing to serve as Donald Trump's vice president? This is something that was sort of bandied about in the media this week," the CNN host asked Carson. "It is summer of the outsider. In just about all the polls, the top two Republicans are yourself and Donald Trump. Would you serve as his running mate? Would you want him to serve as your running mate?"
"All things are possible," said Carson, "but it is much too early to begin such conversations."

You don’t win a nationally televised debate by being rude and obnoxious. You don’t win by interrupting your opponent time after time after time or by being a blowhard. You don’t win with facial expressions, especially smirks or fake laughs, or by pretending to be utterly exasperated with what your opponent is saying.
