The Templar Pundit has a couple posts I found interesting. The first one is "The Five To Watch." His picks for 2008 are Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, George Allen, Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain.
Well I do like Allen-He was a good governor. Rudy is doomed as his name ends in a vowel. I asked before "Who is Mike Huckabee." The more I learn about him the more I like. The Templar Pundit offers this look at healthcare. Some highlights are:
- The health insurance problem should not be dealt with by implementing a watered down version of CanadaCare (or EuroCare) in the United States. Instead, it should be dealt with on a state-by-state basis with proposals such as the ones from Gov. Huckabee (R-AR) and Gov. Romney (R-MA) that provide health insurance to the small number who cannot afford it and are not covered by Medicaid.
Huckabee's system provides low cost health insurance for those who could not afford private health insurance but didn't qualify for Medicaid. The state's healthcare system is propped up in part by excise taxes.
The key point is "these proposals do not call for government interference with private hospitals and healthcare businesses."

Huckabee could be one to watch! Indeed.
