Mike Huckabee is running for President. He was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007, he’s the author of numerous books including From Hope to Higher Ground, and the book about how he lost over 100 pounds, Quit Digging Your Grave with a Knife and Fork : A 12-Stop Program to End Bad Habits and Begin a Healthy Lifestyle. He’s the Jared of Presidential candidates! Helen’s also a fan of his book on juvenile violence, Kids Who Kill.

We talk to Governor Huckabee about gun rights and gun control, health care (and diet), his support for the “Fair Tax” plan, gay marriage, and more. He’s got some interesting things to say, and it turns out he remembers Helen from the aftermath of the Jonesboro school shooting.
