Iowa Voice: Exclusive: Huckabee Interview

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Voice
I explained to him that I posted about the interview and asked for my readers to send in their questions or submit them in the comment section. I didn't get any in the comments, but I did get quite a few via email ... Brian: This next question baffled me a little. I had about fifty emails come in with questions to ask you, yet not a single one was about Iraq. Does that say something to you, that maybe this isn't the big issue the Democrats and the media are making it out to be…? Governor Huckabee: Iraq is a big issue, but it's not as divisive among Republicans and conservatives. We know that we've got to stay there and bring stability. Uh, we all want to get out. But no, it's not the issue [that] drives everybody's thoughts right now. It's not the dinner table issue when the family sits down. They are talking about health care, and education, their jobs, their paychecks, and we need to have more of that discussion. We didn't have ANY questions about education in three debates. One question about health care. Didn't ever bring up…uh, never brought up infrastructure. We talked about Iraq nearly the whole time. And, certainly we need to discuss them more.
