Q&A with Mike Huckabee

Q: Speaking of shelf life, what should we do in Iraq?
A:
The key thing is to have clear expectations of an Iraqi government. We're kidding ourselves if we think it's going to look just like ours. We need a self-determining, stable government that enables the people there to live in relative peace.

Q: What if it's a fundamentalist regime?
A:
Fundamentalist or fascist? Saudi Arabia is strict. That's their decision. But they don't pose an immediate threat to us. If they're going to harbor or support terrorists, then it becomes my business.

Q: But if they're taking away the rights of women...
A:
Obviously, that's not something we'd support. But I don't think we have a right to militarily intervene in every culture with which we disagree.

Q: I read that you're against miniskirts.
A:
If a person dresses provocatively, they're calling attention -- maybe not the most desirable kind -- to private parts of their body.

Q: What about a burka?
A:
No, that hides everything. I think a person's hair, arms, shoulders, legs are an appropriate display of who they are. I want people to be attracted to me because they find me interesting, not because I'm wearing something...well, I doubt I own anything provocative.

Q: How about a miniskirt?
A:
A thong.
