Mike Huckabee, speaking to a group of pastors in my fair state this week (Hat tip: Yahoo! News):
"The former Southern Baptist minister emphasized his opposition to abortion as he urged about 100 pastors in Grand Rapids to support him and use their address books and e-mail lists to mobilize others.
"'I don't presume that you will support me because of a common faith," Huckabee told them. "I know that I have to earn that. But I also recognize this is a unique opportunity. For a long time, those of us who are people of faith have been asked to support a candidate who would talk to us. But rarely has there been one who comes from us.'
"He added, "Life is in the balance.'"
And he's humble, too.
