There are Republicans who can talk about the civil rights movement and the battle for desegregation with passion and principle.
C-Span has Mike Huckabee’s marvelously eloquent 1997 speech on the 40th anniversary of the desegregation of Little Rock’s Central High School onilne. (Watch it here.)
“We can’t say that all things are as they should be. But we can also say that all things aren’t as they once were.”
Watch Mike Huckabee here, from minute 0:00 to 11:26, followed by President Clinton’s effective speech beginning at 34:45.
