Huckabee and God: A Losing Combination?

I heard on "The Daily Show" about how religious Huckabee is. He himself tries to play it down, saying he doesn't go out of his way to flaunt his faith. But there are campaign ads, made by his campaign, that do, in fact, go out of their way to bring up his religious beliefs. One of those beliefs is the belief that evolution did not occur.

I believe a moral President can do a nation good. And it's usually good to admit what you don't know, especially when you're in charge. Faith can be used as an argument for allowing possibilities that science can't plan for. However, when irrational ideas lead to crucial and sometimes deadly decisions, then I think that represents going too far.

I do believe some form of faith and morality is good, and has its place in government. But when you try to define particular aspects and lay down rules whose only proof of being correct is tradition, that's when you enter dangerous territory. Honestly, Huckabee seemed more appealing to me when his religious beliefs were hazy.
