The first couple

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2008 at 2:26 PM

Slate is doing a series of stories on potential first mates (ladies plus Bill). Today, Janet and Mike Huckabee get the treatment, with the accompanying illustration. The writer loves Janet. The opener to "The fascinating marriage of Mike and Janet Huckabee":

When I ask Mike Huckabee's best friend since second grade what his buddy's marriage tells us about the kind of president he'd be, Lester Sitzes III, a dentist in their hometown of Hope, Ark., answers, "Those two folks were virgins when they got married, I can tell you that.''

And though this straight-to-the-promised-land response is unexpected, it's not off-point: The couple's covenant marriage actually seems a highly relevant guide to what the candidate has assured us would be a Bible-based executive branch.
