Century of the Common Iowan: Huckabee Wants Leaders to Work to Get Things Done

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

I have been intrigued by Huckabee for sometime after hearing him on
CSPAN last fall. His remarks on education aren't your typical
Republican talking points and he was the only Republican to speak at
the NEA convention earlier this month. Unlike many other Republicans
Huckabee actually sees the human side of the immigration debate. Last
week, I attended an event with Mike Huckabee in Marshalltown. When I
arrived, there was one staffer who had set up the small room at the
Pizza Ranch and made sure the pizza's were ordered. (There seems to be
food at a lot of Republican events.) I introduced myself to his
staffer as a Liberal blogger in Iowa that liked some of the things I
have heard from Governor Huckabee and then noted the things I talked
about above. We talked some and I told him I was a teacher. When Gov.
Huckabee arrived he went around the room shaking hands. The staffer
introduced me to Gov. Huckabee, saying I was a teacher and we talked
about his warm welcome at the NEA convention and some of the things he
did for education as Governor of Arkansas.
