Mike Huckabee

Click here for audio of the conversation\ \ \ And to what he said in a written statement last month:\ \ \ “If the Supreme Court chooses to review lower-court decisions regarding the 14th Amendment, that is their prerogative, but my priorities for constitutional amendments are to protect human life and traditional marriage.”\ \ \ So here’s the time line. In August he said he supported changing it. In December his chief immigration surrogate, Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist, said Huckabee called for a constitutional amendment to change it. Asked about it at the time, his campaign said they shared Gilchrist’s view. After we printed that, Huckabee said he wasn’t pushing for an amendment, and it would be up to the Supreme Court to take a case. For that matter, he told CNN in an interview he hadn’t given the issue any thought. Now he says the court has already ruled on it — that point is in dispute among legal scholars — and says it’s not the issue anyway. What happened between August and now?\ \ \ — Stephen Dinan, national political reporter, The Washington Times
