The Dallas Morning News today recommended Mike Huckabee for the Republican nomination for president in 2008.
In an editorial that acknowledged the shortcomings of the Republican field in general, the DMN editorial board offered its endorsement to Mike Huckabee, describing him as decent, principled and empathetic…”an antidote ot the power-mad partisanship that has led U.S. politics to a dispiriting standstill.”
The editorial ends with this statement: “America needs a clean break from the bitter politics of the recent past. From the right, Mike Huckabee, a progressive conservative with a pastor’s heart, can deliver.”
A statement from the candidate acknowledged the endorsement as “great news.”
