Dieting to the White House?

The Los Angeles Times interviews Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on his new book, Quit Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork, and his increased national profile as a result of the book tour.
Q: Pundits are suggesting your book is a prelude to a 2008 presidential race? Is that true? And if you were president, what national health goals or strategies would you endorse?

A: I haven't made any decisions about my future plans. I still have a year and half left in my term and this summer I begin serving as the chairman of the National Governors Assn., where our theme over the next year is improving the nation's health. From a policy standpoint, I think it's important to give people incentives to choose good behavior rather than penalize anyone.
