Huckabee Lands Michelle O

Mike Huckabee has booked Michelle Obama for a weekend chat about childhood obesity. Huckabee says he “commends” Obama for her work on the issue. "It is not a left/right, liberal/conservative, Democrat/Republican issue. This is an issue that falls beyond what I call the 'horizontal' issues of left and right and rises to the 'vertical' level of up or down," Huckabee said. "The tragedy would be for conservatives to sit it out and not ensure that the approach is indeed vertical and focused on the cultural and generational changes that are needed." Huckabee added it’s not a problem “that government can fix and shouldn’t attempt to regulate people’s behavior.”
