Huckabee's Bid For The Christian Right

This is a good article by Time Magazine about Mike Huckabee's bid for the Christian right. Yesterday Sandy posted that Huckabee's candidacy will be in serious financial dire straights soon even if he fares well in Iowa and she is right. Hopefully his campaign will gain some traction soon. One thing that Huckabee is undeniabely right about is the need for Republicans to vote according to their conscience and values, not according to whom they think can defeat Sen. Hillary Clinton.

"Don't ever let expediency or electability replace our principles," Huckabee urged the crowd.

Jonathan Alter (Newsweek) has also written a compelling article about why Huckabee might be the best choice for the Republicans.

For me it really comes down to this: As Christians, should we support the candidate that will best represent and fight for the cause of justice and morality in our country and culture, or should we support the candidate that we think can beat Clinton? The current political landscape and front-runners in the GOP reveal that most Republicans don't really believe we can have both in 2008.

Thanks for posting this article. It has definitely peeked my interest about Huckabee....I'm going to have to look into his views more thoroughly.
