"Huckabee, you sweet talker"

A reader sends over something cool -- Mike Huckabee guest hosts a radio program and interviews Mitch Daniels (mp3 file here).

They don't sound like rivals.

HUCK: I want to say of the governors of America, I think he's probably one of the most effective, if not the most , and I'm not the only one person who thinks that.

Governing Magazine named him in 2008 as the public official of the year. He has been given more awards than I have even time to mention. It is my privilege to welcome Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana. Governor, good to have you with me today.

DANIELS: Huckabee, you sweet talker.

HUCK: I'll say anything to kiss up to guys I like. And you're one of them.

Then they chat about Daniels' work on health savings accounts, his push for new jobs/business in Indiana, and spending at the federal level.
