Late yesterday, Bill Clinton made an interesting statement while stumping for Hillary in Iowa. He predicted Mike Huckabee (who, like Clinton, hails from Hope, Arkansas) would win the Republican caucus today and even gave him a sort of hedging endorsement. From the Sun:

"Governor Huckabee has got a little hometown pride going because it looks like the Iowa republicans are going to give him the caucus." ... "He looks to me like the only one who can tell a joke. It's a pretty dark crowd." ... "You know he was underestimated. He's got on well here and it doesn't surprise me."
