My dad didn't say this in his last email to you, (because he's too modest) but he did a great job in last week's debate. Of course I'm biased so don't take my word for it, read some of the commentary from the national media:
"Mike Huckabee is really terrific. It's hard to know whether a debate watched only by a few million people can really launch someone, but I'd say halfway through that he is far and away the most likable and eloquent candidate on that stage."
-John Podhoretz, National Review
"I thought the person that helped themself the most was Mike Huckabee...Yes, but I think he came close to entering the top tier or really elevating himself. First of all, he was a good personality, a very relaxed, warm presence. Second thing, he actually branded himself. You know, you've got 10 guys up there. Distinguish yourself. And he actually distinguished himself as sort of a populist, straight-talking person from out in the country."
"I thought Huckabee came across as authentic, as well as likeable. And then there was naturalness to him. He answered the questions. He didn't have talking points."
-Syndicated columnist Mark Shields
