Video: Mike Huckabee, John McCain on Fox News Sunday

Here are both interviews in the order in which they aired on Sunday, December 9, 2007.

First, here’s Mike Huckabee’s entire interview on Fox News Sunday from 12/9/07 with Chris Wallace:

I think he fielded the whole AIDS statement controversy quite well. However, he totally sidestepped addressing the statements about homosexuality. He has weathered most of this criticism very well by being out in front of it and making tons of appearances to discuss it. Also handled all the faith questions well in my opinion.

The definition of what he meant by “pathway” may be debatable. However, on water boarding and closing Guantanamo Bay, I’m not so sure how that’s going to play with the conservative base, he’s sort of taking the McCain view, which may hurt him in the primaries, help him in the general if he’s the nominee.

Second, here is McCain’s entire interview from the same airing:

McCain had a strong showing as well in my opinion. It was more an illustration of his foreign policy experience. However, I doubt he’ll win New Hampshire, but it’s still a possibility. I do generally agree with him on ethanol subsidies.

    Huckabee fielded the AIDS issue much better than the homosexual issue. Yet beyond these details, he is handling the press in, what I consider, a presidential manner. He refuses to play into some of their questioning, yet keeps himself poised and confident.

    Pretty soon candidates are going to have to define themselves against these media critics such as Chris Wallace or Tim Russert. As of now, I feel only a few have done a good job of it. Huckabee is one of them.
