Huckabee: 'A new day in American politics'

After having an unintentional lunch yesterday with Obama and his wife I am very happy that Mike Huckabee came out on top. I am even more elated that the Republican voter turnout trounced the Democrat. I truly do not understand how a Christian can vote for a Democrat, I believe their platform is at extreme odds with the bible.

DES MOINES — Long-shot Republican candidate Mike Huckabee declared "a new day in American politics" Thursday after riding strong support from evangelical Christians into a decisive victory in the Iowa caucuses.

Huckabee, an ordained Baptist minister and, like Bill Clinton, a native of Hope, Ark., managed to win despite trailing badly in national polls for most of the year. He out-hustled runner-up Mitt Romney and better-known candidates John McCain, Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani with a coalition of pastors, home schooling adherents, gun rights advocates and supporters of a new national tax system.

"This election is not about me. It's about we," the former Arkansas governor told supporters here. He said the victory would ignite "a prairie fire of new hope and zeal."

Isn't Huckabee in the Kenneth Copeland crowd? I would hate to see someone who adheres to dominion theology in the seat as president. Luckily it is up to the good Lord who goes there. Just a thought.

I don't believe that to be the case, but nonetheless I would take that theology over Mormon theology any day.
