Descision '08 -- the Scorecard
MSNBC has a story up about Mike Huckabee announcing his bid for the Repubican nomination in 2008. It's a good introduction for anyone who, like me, knows practically nothing about the guy. The article says he's a "staunch conservative," opposing abortion rights and gay marriage, but it also notes that he backed tax increases for school funding, expanded state insurance and, and opposed barring illegals from receiving state services. Of course, to an AP writer, anyone to the left of Chairman Mao is a "staunch conservative," so let's take our labels with a grain of salt.
The article also helpfully lists who has declared their candidacies for Democrat and Republican nominees:
(the list omits Bill Richardson)
(and Huckabee, of course)
