Met Huckabee #NiceGuy at fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Dems in LA also. Just missed VP Joe Biden by 3 hours. #Traffic! pic.twitter.com/qw2a6DGba9— FatScribe (@FatScribe) September 20, 2015
Was invited by one of my besty fave clients to a little soiree and fund raiser just down the road from where Joe Biden was also pressing the flesh. After a day/week of conservative policy wonks running around SoCal fighting for the same meetings and limited resources, the focus and locus now shifts to New Hampshire and climes eastward and other deep pockets.
I will say, I've met several presidential candidates and sitting Supreme Court Justices and Attorneys General and Governors and loads of policy types in between over the years, during and since law school, and few are as nice and down-to-earth as Mike Huckabee and his wife. True delight to make his acquaintance, and as usual, many friends in common.
Like I said, nice guys and excellent pols and eloquent conservatives are not always meant to be president of these united states. Which is too bad, but part of the facts of life inside the Beltway. Joe Biden is another nice guy, a lefty nice guy who plays hardball. Let's hope he's another nice guy who isn't meant to be president. ;)
