Examples: "He [Huckabee] seems very real, very authentic. It's hard not to like him, and you can't
say that about some of the other Republican candidates." – Bob Schieffer, CBS
"What he [Romney] talked about was a complete repudiation of any notion of
separation of church and state…" – Sally Quinn, ABC
"Rudy [Giuliani] would be a great candidate if he was pro-life, but… that is an issue we
can't overcome. It's a huge handicap for him." – voter, FOX
No surprise here . . . but a nice one to link to when all the Huck lovers post how much he's been "savaged" by the media.
