Mike Beebe's parsing

Posted By on Sat, May 31, 2008 at 10:58 AM

Another good weekly column by Andrew DeMillo, this one on Gov. Mike Beebe's triangulation of the hot-button question (for some hotheads anyway) of giving in-state tuition to Arkansas high school graduates and residents who might lack a Social Security number. Beebe casts it all as an argument over legal technicalities. DeMillo recalls how the previous governor, Mike Huckabee, in one of the shining moments of his tenure, cast it as a moral question. (He had to triangulate a bit himself in the presidential campaign, of course.)
