*Renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson inched closer to declaring a 2016 run for the White House on Thursday, saying that while he never expected to seek public office, “the good Lord had a different plan for me.”

Asked by Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV about several grass-roots campaigns to draft him for a presidential run on the Republican ticket, Carson said:

“As far as my running for public office, that was never my intention. I thought when I retired I was going to play golf and learn how to play an organ.

“But, obviously, the good Lord had a different plan for me. I will obviously listen, but that is not what I really had intended to do.”
