My Current Frontrunner: Mike Huckabee

I’m going to be honest about politics—is that an oxymoron? Meaning: where I currently stand in the presidential race—subject to change. Mike Huckabee has impressed me over the past month and is the current frontrunner for my vote.

The Baptist minister has won me over with his “realness,” and political prowess. He is well spoken and willing to stand up for his beliefs relative to the other candidates. Rudy Giuliani seems to take shots at other candidates more often then he’ll legitimately answer a question. Mitt Romney, my early favorite, lost me during the Republican CNN/YouTube debate when he danced around various questions sounding unpolished.

I won’t discount the likes of Barack Obama, and the other Democrats. I need to spend more time examining their various perspectives. The current issue of The Atlantic has a great article by Andrew Sullivan about Barack Obama. It’s long, but worth reading. He has a very interesting life story to say the least.

The main issues affecting my stance (in no particular order) are: education, immigration (illegal), health care, war policy, and the economy as a whole. The candidate willing to captivate my attention in these areas will get my vote. What are your top five?

If anyone has any good books, articles, etc, highlighting where various candidates stand on these issues, send them my way!
