SOUNDBITES — “While I’m very comfortable with someone saying, ‘I’m a Republican, but I believe in same-sex marriage.’ I would not be comfortable with the party as a party deciding to make that part of its platform. At that point, they would lose me. If they became a party that supported the termination of an unborn human life for no reason, I would find that at that point the party has left me. But does that mean everyone has to agree with me? Of course not. You can continue to be part of the party even if the party’s official platform is pro-life and pro-marriage.” —Mike Huckabee, explaining what it would take to get him out of the GOP
