I was very disappointed that Mike Huckabee dropped out of the race tonight. I was very proud of the honorable and gentlemanly way he ended his bid for the White House. He was very gracious and eloquent in defeat.
While he did not win the nomination, he did win the respect of many. He brought fresh ideas and old-time values to the race. He came from nowhere and captured the imaginations and votes of millions. He stood fast to the end, and has honorably bowed out.
Now is the time for us to rally 'round John McCain and support his candidacy. While there have been many articles and debates on his conservative credentials, the conservative credentials of the Democratic contenders has never been in doubt - because they have none.
Thank you Mike, and God bless you!
