Credit where due

Posted By on Thu, Dec 7, 2006 at 7:37 AM

Yes, Gov. Mike Huckabee has redeeming qualities. An illustration yesterday was his continued refusal to demagogue immigrants and to urge brotherly treatment of the Hispanic influx. Seth Blomeley's thorough treatment of his remarks before and after Political Animals yesterday can be read by copying and pasting from the Democrat-Gazette:

Huckabee has said similar before, but it's creditworthy that he continues to say such things as he begins his presidential tour. Lest you doubt this is an issue fraught with peril for a Republican primary candidate, consider a few of the anti-immigrant blogs' reaction.

Like here. And, in Arkansas, here and also here.
