O ur next president could be a surgeon. Republican candidate Ben Carson, MD, was the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, while Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R), MD, is an ophthalmic surgeon. I'm the first to admit that I don't know a lot about politics. But if the qualifications for running for President of the United States include having loads of money and the confidence that your ideas will work — make that, the absolute conviction that your ideas are the only logi- cal, possible course of action — then it actually seems like it would be a pretty good fit for a surgeon. The president serves as the head of state, chief executive and commander-in-chief. It must take a pretty sturdy ego to fill those shoes. Do we know anyone with one of those?
