Broncos' Tebow Doesn't Rule Out Possible Future in Politics

Accustomed to being questioned by the media? Check.

Knows how to handle himself in front of a crowd? Check.

Has the ability to galvanize (and divide) the American people? Check.

Is on the front lines of one of the country's hot-button political issues? Check.

Yup, Tim Tebow definitely could have a career in politics once his playing days are over. The Broncos' quarterback didn't rule it out, either, when the subject was broached in an interview on the Golf Channel's "Feherty Live."

"It could be something in my future," Tebow said. "It's something I'll have to think about and if I pray about, you know, I have no idea right now. But possibly."

Tebow's consideration makes complete sense. After all, Tebow makes no bones about his evangelical Christian faith and concordant pro-life stance on abortion, something he feels so strongly about that he starred in a Super Bowl ad about the issue in 2010. Tebow is already a darling among the Republican party, too, with more than one GOP presidential candidate courting him for an endorsement.

So, yeah, all things considered, why wouldn't politics seem like a good fit for Tebow?
