"Slim" Huckabee?

(November 11, 2003) — (Little Rock-AP) -- President Bush has a new nickname for Governor Huckabee: "Skinny." During a visit to Little Rock yesterday, Bush kidded Huckabee about the 75 pounds he has lost over about five months. Bush joked that he almost did not recognize his fellow Republican. The governor has lost the weight through exercise and eating health food ever since he was diagnosed with diabetes in June. Huckabee and his wife, Janet, rode with President Bush in his limousine to and from the airport. After Bush departed, Huckabee said the president congratulated him on his diet. Bush was in Little Rock to raise money for his re-election bid.
