Mike Huckabee recently met with a group of generals who are touring Iowa in the hopes of convincing presidential candidates to oppose torture. He left the meeting with a couple bold new positions. Huckabee now opposes waterboarding and supports shuttering Guantanamo, joining only John McCain and Ron Paul amongst the Republican candidates to hold these positions.
Maybe the guy is a member of the Christian left. He may not have the best foreign policy chops in the world, but his instincts are good. Would we welcome him even though he’s never had a sip of beer?
