Overview

How powerful is integrity? Just ask minister-turned-statesman, Mike Huckabee.  As lieutenant governor of Arkansas in 1996, he was publicly cast between the ultimate rock and hard place when his boss, governor Jim Guy Tucker, refused to resign despite his felony convictions in the Whitewater scandal.  Holding fast to the tenets of honor and faith, and his concern over what was best for the state’s people, Huckabee led the impeachment charge against his superior before a televised audience. That same day, Tucker resigned, and Huckabee would serve as governor of Arkansas until 2007, winning many national honors along the way.

Character Makes a Difference is Mike Huckabee’s biographical account of how he handled that potentially major constitutional crisis and why he believes character is the key issue in everyone’s life, “in the work you do, the candidates you vote for, the people who look to you for leadership.”

I bought this book just last saturday, feb. 9th to learn more about republican presidential candidate mike huckabee and i was floored by this book...i couldnt put it down so i read it right away and finished it the next day...it was awesome. i recommend people to read it especially those who are people of faith and those people who love this country and want to choose the next president who will lead this country out of oblivion. It has enlightened me in more ways than one and people just have to look at the character of the person they are choosing to be the next president not just the superficial reasons...i do hope people will read this book ...its an eye-opener!!!

I was very pleased with governor mike huckabees latest bestseller 'character makes a difference' it was special to me cause I really got to know this presidential candidate through his writings and he writes alot about his small town were hes from and how he managed to run a clean governors administration and what kind of character it takes to have this kind of leadership. this really impressed me caused so many politicans and candidates and other famous people are always getting into trouble cause they have forgotten about their roots and what it means to have character. this book is the first of its kind to let the people know what they should expect from there leaders and their candidates.
