Tim Tebow: I Could Go Into Politics
During an interview Saturday night with Dave Feherty, host of the Golf Channel's "Feherty Live," Denver Broncos quarterback and former Florida Gator star Tim Tebow said he could one day explore politics "if it's something I care about."
"I don't know -- it could be something in my future," Tebow said. "If it's something I care about, possibly."
Never mind that Tebow has sparked controversy over his strong religious views, the 2012 Republican presidential candidates have worked to associate themselves with the charismatic quarterback. At one point, Texas Gov. Rick Perry -- who dropped out of the race just before the South Carolina primary -- compared himself to Tebow during a debate, saying, "I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses."
Virtually all GOP hopefuls have reached out to him, hoping to win his backing, but Tebow has yet to endorse a presidential candidate.
