Gov Mike Huckabee

Host of TV's "Huckabee", NYT's Bestselling Author and Leading Commentator

world magWORLD magazine is providing readers a day-in-the-life look at Gov. Mike Huckabee. The evangelical publication followed the former presidential candidate around as he prepared to shoot an episode of his Fox New Channel talk show, Huckabee. (That week's guest was country legend Willie Nelson.)

Here's an excerpt of the Q&A portion:

WORLD: If John McCain had stood up against TARP last year, do you think he would be president?

HUCKABEE: I think he might have been. I do believe the turning point in the presidential election last fall was John McCain's suspending his campaign, going to Washington, and in essence melting into the body of the Senate. He meekly raised his hand and said, "Me too." 

WORLD: Where do you think some of the Christian conservative leaders went wrong in 2008? huck world mag

HUCKABEE: They became more enamored with the process of politics than with principles and convictions. I saw pretty firsthand a lot of people saying, "We don't think you can win. We like everything you stand for and you are one of us, but we're not going to support you because you can't win." My assessment was when Christians decide to get involved as Christians and then abandon the issues by which they are essentially motivated, they might as well be the Republican Women of Poinsett County or something. They become ineffective as issue players. 

The magazine also asked the former Arkansas governor questions about the future of conservism, his role as "the Christian candidate" and the possibility of a 2012 presidential run. The article can be read in full at WorldMag.com.
