Huckabee heats up

All well-informed people will read my column in this morning’s Democrat-Gazette. Since I wrote that last week, Mitt Romney won a beauty contest in Illinois and Mike Huckabee finished a bit further back in the pack, which matters very little.

Romney is another example of how far money will carry those of limited ability. I hit on something in today’s paper that has been eating me for some time. Voters naturally want to know what candidates really believe, so many have been very quick to tell folks exactly what they think they want to hear. It turns out to have been lies more than once. You just can’t see inside somebody’s heart.

Our government was never meant to be some sort of extension of the church. It is more than foolish to look at politicians as spiritual leaders. The best we can hope for is that they would be good people. There are some things Mike Huckabee did as governor of Arkansas that commend him as somebody who cares about human beings. Of course, his record is not perfect. I guess I am saying that, by their fruits you will know them.
