Today, I became part of the pushy press...or at least got pushed by a lot of them.
At the conclusion of a press event where Mike Huckabee spoke about his new book, “A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (and a Trillion That We Don’t!),” and the possibility of him running in the next presidential election (no, he did not confirm his candidacy like many of the journalists in attendance were hoping), I ran in his direction wanting an autograph for the free book I received upon entrance into the event.
I didn't get very far. The cameramen and women basically formed a blockade around the former governor and there was no chance of him seeing my pleading glances with the hefty filming equipment blocking my view. But, I was determined.
