I heard today that Dr Carson was a Seventh Day Adventist. This is interesting to me because i was raised SDA, I left the church when I left home and am a Calvinist Baptist now.
First off the possibility of an SDA becoming president was discussed around me on more than one occasion growing up, Adventist are almost always pacifists, I have only known one in my lifetime that wasn't although I am sure there are a few.
Next is the Saturday/Sabbath keeping, most thought being a president or politician in general would interfere with this.
Adventists are political and civic minded, elections were a big deal when I grew up, but most for the above reasons told me growing up that president was not within reach within SDA beliefs.
Who knows, this is a new one on me and a subject I did not seriously think I would ever ponder.

One more thing, I personally believe that much of the reason for Romney losing was that he was Mormon, although Adventists aren't normally considered a cult they are no doubt on the fringe of Christianity, my personal experience was that for the wrong person adventism was a step away from cults(David Koresh).
Though I do know some whacked out SDA's I know far more well balanced wonderful SDA's that are the salt of the earth.

Just some disjointed thoughts rolling around in my head waiting to be formed into an opinion.

This is the guy who chastized Obama at the Sunday morning breakfast?  That was impressive.
