    Might not agree with the Huckabee folks on a lot of the social issues, but I think there's some valid and worthy arguments to consider openly and honestly.

    Despite all that, he strikes me as a sincere and good man. I can respect HIM at least, unlike much of the rest of their candidates.

    I hope we can keep a grip on the partisanship on both sides and work together to deal with our mutual REAL opposition... our "aristocratic" class.

    Knocking down those gates from BOTH sides of the aisle and walking through together again, would be the best for us all I think. Like Obama said last night... the UNITED states again.

    I can only hope. :)

      Well, I even like him... kinda...  Think how an independent might feel about him, especially if you are disgusted with the norm of politics nowadays...

      Thanks,

        shake our heads.  We know the issues, and he dodges and weaves masterfully.  He is slick.  People underestimate him at their own peril.

        I think McCain would be easier to expose, especially when he gets a "flashback" and goes postal on the campaign trail.  Hillary's folks would eat him alive, just as W's folks did in 2000.

        Huckabee is a much worse GWB.  He's dumber and much more rabid in his religious beliefs.  I will do everything I can to keep him from winning anything.  I'm in South Carolina, so I'll be damn busy :-)

        Huckabee only had nice things to say about Obama this morning, none of them involving Obama's cleanliness or skill in articulation.  

        Of course, it could also be like RedState's "Congrats, Barack!" caption on the Hindenberg of Hillary's inevitability, it could be that Hillary-haters on the Right are perfectly happy to have her trounced by the Center-Left.

      who thinks the earth is 6000 years old, that evolution is a lie, and who wants to destroy what's left of the separation between church and state. I don't care how populist the rest of his message is, those 3 things would keep me from voting for him. Plus he'd keep us as the laughing stock that Bush made us. American Fundies look ridiculous to the rest of the world. And they are. Ridiculous that is.

      I'm surrounded by these types because we homeschool. I'd want to leave the country of one of them ends up in the White House.

      The religious right stole homeschooling. We want it back.

        but one point to consider, is that we already DO have one of them in the WH. But without the same recognition of what Jesus actually SAID.

        Huckabee really does SEEM to get it and his record in AR seems to bear that out.

        Wouldn't be perfect, but I don't think it'd be as bad as we've got now.

        I'm not entirely out of touch with the evangelical thing myself, mind you. I've got a sister that's in it over her head. Haven't talked to her or my niece and nephews for quite some time.

        But despite all the differences, her heart is in the right place most of the time.
