In the run up to elections at all levels, candidates or their proxies often say that God called them to run. But if experience is any guide, pols should be wary if they get the call from on high. They might consider the line from the Biblical book of Matthew, "Many are called, but few are chosen."
This year, we have no less than four God-called GOP candidates for president, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), (Mrs. Perry agrees) and now Herman Cain. So far.
