September 7, 2007

The Honorable Fred Thompson
1130 Eighth Avenue South
Nashville, TN 37203

Dear Senator Thompson,

Welcome to the 2008 Presidential race. I look forward to seeing you on the trail in the upcoming days, weeks, and months ahead. I share your view of the debates and agree that Newt's "Nine Nineties in Nine" concept is a far better way to make sure America's next President has the character and capacity to lead our nation forward, and that's why I have already signed that pledge.

I agree that what is needed is a real discussion by the candidates about their vision for the future of our country. The debates so far have not offered an in-depth discussion on critical issues such as health care, education, energy independence, in addition to terrorism and national security.

I am aware of your comments on Fox News that you would like to participate in a series of Lincoln Douglas-styled debates. I would like to officially accept your offer and look forward to working with your staff to schedule this. I would suggest we start this series in New Hampshire. At the end of these debates, the American people will know each candidate far greater and would be able to choose which candidate possesses the depth of knowledge on the issues and has the character and capacity to lead or great nation. More importantly, the American people would be able to rely on a true conversation on the issues, instead of just 30-second ads and soundbites to decide which candidate has the right vision for America's future.

Senator, let's lead by example and get the ball rolling. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this idea and debating you in front of the American people.


Mike Huckabee

Former Governor of Arkansas (1996-2007)


Quote of the Day: Peggy Noonan on Mike Huckabee
"Mike Huckabee, and for this I ♥ Huckabee, shot back [at Ron Paul] that history will judge whether we were right to go in, but for now, "we're there." He echoed Colin Powell: We broke it, now we own it. "Congressman, we are one nation. We can't be divided. . . . If we make a mistake, we make it as a single country, the United States of America, not the divided states ofAmerica."

David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network says he doesn't know why Mr. Huckabee isn't in the top tier. I wonder too. Maybe he is and we don't know it."

MSNBC: Huckabee's Crossover Appeal
MSNBC is starting to grasp the true power of Huckabee as a presidential candidate--he has an uncanny ability as an authentic conservative to appeal to traditionally moderate (and even liberal) audiences.We've been saying it for years. Mike Huckabee, if the nominee, will win and he will solidify the Republican party for generations to come. You think "Reagan Democrats" were a big deal? Wait till you see the "Huckabee Democrats."

Says MSNBC: "Today, the chattering class's favorite dark horse GOP candidate, Mike Huckabee, does his turn walking a day in the shoes of an SEIU worker. What's remarkable about this event? All of the Democrats have done it, but Huckabee's the only Republican to do so. In fact, to date, Huckabee's the only Republican to nab a union endorsement (the machinists endorsed him in the GOP primary, while endorsing Clinton in the Dem primary). Is there any other self-described conservative candidate doing more to show crossover appeal than Huckabee? Imagine if Huckabee is on the national ticket and SEIU's Andy Stern has nothing but nice things to say about him."
