I don’t disagree at all with the position but the delivery is a real problem, so bad in this case they had to offer a formal clarification. I actually caught the video which certainly sounds like he was endorsing a constiutional amendment, beginning his answer to whether he favored a constitutional amendment and reversing Roe with “yes, yes.” ( Hence the NRO correction.) There is a great benefit to communicating through blogs as he has done –you can be clear and edit to your heart’s delight. The campaign, however, is largely verbal and you just have to be clearer and more understandable than what we’ve seen. The retail politics in Iowa and New Hampshire is generally not scripted and very interactive. If you watch a townhall with Mitt or Rudy they move fairly seemlessly from one topic to another with nary a “hmmm” or “ahhh.” They’ve been practicing for months now and each is frankly startling good in these forums. Huckabee is charming and glib and although I find his meeage unattractive is also an excellent communicator. It’s going to be a big challenge for Fred.
