Much is being made today of Mike Huckabee's 1992 comments regarding AIDS.
I have three thoughts:
1. I am not convinced that Huckabee's past stand will hurt him in a Republican Primary -- particulary in the Iowa Caucus ...
2. Regardless of whether his comments were right or wrong, Huckabee has wisely avoided backtracking. When you backtrack in politics, two things usually happen: a) You don't win over your enemies, and b) you actually anger your supporters who agreed with you from the beginning ...
3. It's important to put the comments in context; Just a year earlier -- in 1991 -- Magic Johnson announced publicly that he was HIV-positive. This was a stunning revelation, and most people believed Johnson would be dead within a few years. Obviously, that was not the case. While AIDS had been around since the 80s, the perception has changed dramatically in the past 15 years.
