Mike Huckabee Speaks to Bill O'Reilly - 3/11/08
Mike Huckabee gets interviewed on the O'Reilly Factor and sounds off on Eliot Spitzer's sex scandal, 1 night before Spitzer resigns his position as the Governor of New York. Huckabee wants people to be sympathetic towards Spitzer's wife and 3 daughters. He couldn't believe Spitzer had all the time and money to be so involved with a sex scandal.
O'Reilly then asks Governor Huckabee about how he would contest either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama if he (Huckabee) was the Republican nominee. Mike Huckabee said that Clinton's "experience" in the White House should not be credited to her, because it was Bill Clinton's experience she's claiming as her own. He also said that you must be very careful when running against a female opponent. Through his personal experience, Huckabee understands that one cannot be too soft nor too hard towards female candidates.
When asked about Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee says that you must embrace his "style," and not criticize the excitement Obama was able to generate. Governor Huckabee compliments Senator Obama's ability to create new voters and supporters. To combat Obama, Huckabee would point out how expensive all of Obama's ideas and plans would ultimately cost tax payers and how much more debt we'd incur as a result.
