Mike Huckabee
Mike Huckabee still believes in a place called Hope. And if he has his way, the small Arkansas town of his birth will be home to not one, but two presidents. The affable, folksy former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee was born August 24, 1955 in the same small town that President Bill Clinton called home. Huckabee left at 18 to attend Ouachita Baptist University, graduating with a degree in religion. In 1980, Huckabee earned his masters from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and began working in the media, creating local religious television stations in Arkansas. In 1993, Huckabee was elected lieutenant governor of Arkansas in a special election and voted to a full four year term the next year. After the resignation of his predecessor, Huckabee became governor, serving two terms in office. He plays bass guitar with his band Capitol Offense, and was also an advocate of arts and music education during his tenure.
