Mike Huckabee, an ordained Baptist Minister/Pastor of 12 years, became one of Arkansas' best Governors for 10 and a half years. Huckabee, more than any pundit on TV, understands both sides of the Barack Obama / Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy. Even though Huckabee is not African American, he fully understands the segregation of America's past and present, being born in Arkansas and having lived there for most of his life.
In this revealing interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show, Mike Huckabee talks about his Iowa victory in early January, how well Barack Obama handled the Jeremiah Wright controversy, and then spoke about segregation.
Although I personally do not fully agree with Mike Huckabee's statements of how Obama handled this situation, I do agree with Huckabee when he said that we have to "cut some slack to people" like Wright who experienced racism first-hand and the fact that anyone of any race, who experienced those things would probably have the same "chip" on our shoulders, maybe more.
This interview shows once again, how understanding, compassionate, and insightful Mike Huckabee is. He can see things in different perspectives that many others cannot or refuse to see and understand. He says things that many politicians, leaders, and media personalities fail to say... either due to fear, ignorance, and/or lack of insight. Mike Huckabee was a great pastor, is a great politician, a great leader, and overall, a great person.
The interview ends with Foo Fighter's "My Hero."
