Major profile post-campaign in Esquire of Mike Huckabee. The writer, A.J. Jacobs, an avowed liberal, really likes him. Really, really likes him, despite his pronouncements on sexual politics, economics, etc.
He's the most likable politician I've ever met. Here he is, one of the most conservative voices in a couple of decades. He's a four-star general in the battle against gay marriage. He's fervently pro-life and is dubious about Darwinism. He disciplined his kids with corporal punishment and he loves his guns. And yet, when you're with him, he's so damn folksy and kind and self-deprecating that the liberal media (i.e., me) just want to hug him.
