The morning Huck

Two days before Super Tuesday, amid throngs of adoring evangelical Christians, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said he doesn't have any military experience -- but he has been a soldier.

"Giving your life to Jesus means you've just enlisted," he said "To follow him is the real deal. It is a battle."

..."Soldiers for Christ. Expect some rough, rough, rough moments," said Huckabee...

NAME CALLING: Nice-guy Mike calls Mitt Romney "arrogant and presumptuous." And he offers excuses aplenty in a Washington Post story in which he reiterates he isn't quitting.
