Rick Warren Hearts Huckabee

Lately there has been a positive trend of influential Christian leaders coming forward in support of Mike Huckabee. The latest source is Dr. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California and best-selling author of "The Purpose-Driven Life". Dr. Warren recently made this statement about Governor Huckabee on a radio program:

“I know most of the candidates running for president but I’ve known Mike Huckabee the longest, since we did our graduate degrees together in the late 70s. Mike’s a man of vision, compassion, and integrity. I’ve watched his uncanny ability to identify with normal people in ways that many leaders don’t. That’s probably why TIME named him one of the five best governors in America. He’s definitely presidential material. But honestly, what I find most appealing is his self-deprecating humor. That’s a key sign of a spiritually and emotionally healthy leader - someone who is comfortable with himself, is authentic, doesn’t wear a mask, and is secure enough to be humble. People love that.”
