“What do you think of Elizabeth Warren?” asked host Kirsten Powers. “I think there are a lot of people who do feel like she could potentially give [Hillary Clinton] some trouble.”

“Please give us Elizabeth Warren,” Huckabee said to laughter. “Please, God, let us have Elizabeth Warren! I think she’s a passionate person, and I respect her because she has the courage to speak her convictions. I do respect the fact that she comes out and says something and he’s not so handled and scripted. That’s refreshing.
