Dallas Morning News endorses Huckabee, Obama

December 24th, 2007 . by TexasFred

DALLAS (Reuters) - The Dallas Morning News on Sunday endorsed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee for the Republican nomination for president and Sen. Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee, saying both took a fresh approach.

Huckabee, a folksy former Baptist preacher, has had a meteoric rise in opinion polls in recent weeks, largely because he has connected with the Republican Party’s influential evangelical wing.

This puts him in serious contention with less than two weeks before the January 3 nomination battle in Iowa, which starts the state-by-state process to pick the Republican and Democratic candidates for November’s presidential election.

“Mr. Huckabee is not an ideal candidate … His religious conservatism, particularly his past rhetoric on women and gays, can be alarming,” the paper said in the first of twin editorials under the headline “We Recommend.”

“But religious conservatives aren’t easily pigeonholed … Mr. Huckabee has a stout heart for working families and the poor,” it said.
