Huckabee likens Petraeus to King David

On Fox News this morning, Mike Huckabee called David Petraeus "one of the greatest American military heroes ever", and compared him to the Old Testament's King David for the the latter's infamous affair with Bathsheba.

"I want to be careful that we don't get so wrapped up in the scandal that we don't somehow fail to remember that most all of his career has been that of a distinguished soldier and an honorable man who made a huge mistake.

But, like King David, who made a huge mistake -- he was still called 'a man after God's own heart'."
