Mike Huckabee On The Clintons

Republican presidential contender (and former Arkansas governor) Mike Huckabee on the Clintons:

"This will really rankle some of my Republican colleagues: Bill Clinton and Hillary went through some horrible experiences in their marriage because of some of the reckless behavior that he has admitted he had. I am not defending him on that, it's indefensible.

"Just let's not let it get lost on us that they kept their marriage together. They raised a magnificent daughter. Chelsea is truly a delightful human being. ... She's polite, thoughtful, intelligent and everything you would hope a daughter to be. But they kept their marriage together.

"And a lot of the Republicans who have condemned them and talk about their platform of family values, interestingly, didn't keep their own families together. Give Bill and Hillary Clinton credit for doing something we say they should have done and that is hold their marriage together in spite of enormous trials."

They kept their marriage together. Those Arkansas governors make sense, regardless of what political party they are beholden.
Here is more on the Huckabee/Clinton conversation.

Makes perfect sense that Huckabee would highlight those points about the Clintons. He's a fair and genuine man. Even the most staunch Republican could not argue with the points he made (at least not with a straight face?)
