Huckabee's About-face On Clinton Family Values

by TNR Staff, TNR Staff | October 23, 2007

Huckabee Hearts Hillary [Eriposte, The Left Coaster]:

"As it turns out, Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who has recently been on an anti-Hillary rampage with his colleagues in the freak-show known as the GOP Presidential campaign, went slightly off-script back in August on this very matter."

Dodd Surges Online [RealClearPolitics]:

Seemingly absent of a flag bearer up to this point, Chris Dodd appears to be making his move. Just yesterday, he posted over at Huffington Post on his role as a senator, his obligation to the U.S. Constitution and why he's stalling the FISA bill. Today, he held a video chat/interview at FireDogLake, where he reaffirmed his position on these issues.

From First Class to Coach [Greg Sargent, Talking Points Memo]:

"Michael Tomasky has published an interesting new interview with Hillary. The news in it is that she vows as President to conduct a systematic review of the ways in which the Bush administration has hoarded executive power -- a review, she claims, that could actually cause her to relinquish some of those powers."

Obama's Bible Blunder [Earl Ofari Hutchinson, Huffington Post]

"How hard will Obama fight as president for tolerance, specifically against anti gay bigotry? This is the supreme litmus test for any candidate that purports to champion diversity and tolerance. It's even more of a test, or challenge for Obama, given the depth of homophobia among many mega black ministers, and many of those in their congregations."
