Mike Huckabee pulled out a very respectable win in Iowa today. I don't know if he is my idea of a great candidate or not but he certainly adds color to the political landscape. His spot on Leno was enjoyable. Here's a quote that makes me inclined to give him a closer listen. There's a lot of truth and character in it.
" I have a great respect for Barack Obama. I think he's a person who is trying to do in many ways what I hope I'm trying to do and that is to say let's quit what I call "horizontal politics." Everything in this country is not left, right, liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican. I think the country is looking for somebody who is vertical, who is thinking, "Let's take America up and not down," and people will forgive you for being left or right if you go up."
