So most of the hot shot Republican candidates for president skipped last night's debate on black issues. I was thinking, whatever. I don't care, but then I was listening to Morning Joe on MSNBC and Joe Scarborough was pissed and he kind of got me a little pissed. As a Republican, he said he was embarrassed by this lack of respect for the issues and his party's almost refusal to even reach out. And so what if they get put on the hot seat for an hour? They want to be leader of the free world, but can't take a hard question from a black American? Of course Mike Huckabee was there; love him and knew he'd be there. I hope this works out in his favor in the polls. I know he's not a top contender, but whoever gets the nod better pick him for VP.

"Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, another candidate who made the trip, called the situation "embarrassing" for his rivals. "We've come a long way, but we have a long way to go, and we don't get there if we don't sit down and work through issues," he told the appreciative crowd."
