MSNBC's "Morning Joe" always welcomed Mike Huckabee to speak on the show throughout the campaign. Host Joe Scarborough, co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist never took Huckabee's candidacy seriously and even occasionally made fun of him. However, towards the end of Mike Huckabee's run at the nomination, they finally realized how great of a politician, person, and leader Huckabee really was.
This was a great telephone interview in which Gov. Huckabee reflected on the hard-fought race where he eventually took "2nd place," with not even 1/5 of the staff of other campaigns, not even 1/10 of the funding, started out with virtually no name-recognition, no Republican establishment support, and had to fight against media bias as well as an Internet smear campaign.
Scarborough and Brzezinski ended the interview awed and extremely impressed with all that Mike Huckabee has accomplished. The MSNBC crew also ended the segment with a great song by Jimi Hendrix's rendition of "All Along the Watchtower."
