Gov. Mike Beebe may be for a highway plan. Or he may not be. What about seat belts? Motorcycle helmets? Talking on the phone in a car?
Hard to say, judging by this account of Beebe's first call-in show on AETN. It may simply capture the essence of Beebe. He's for what everybody's for and will join them when that's clear.
Has he ever taken a strong position on the losing side of a great controversy? Taken early leadership on an initially difficult proposition? I'll have to get back to you on that.
