The Sudden Impact of Mike Huckabee Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is an ordained Baptist minister who still delivers sermons full of Old Testament stories and New Testament fire. The Baptist preacher tells reporters he wants the Rolling Stones for his inaugural ball. He also wants to abolish Social Security , Medicare and the IRS .
