Huckabee's Christmas greeting really made me mad. It's expected that politicians will put out political ads at Christmas time. I didn't like Huckabee putting the subtle cross in the background of his video, and I really didn't like him denying it was there. Adding that to all of the ruined Christmas songs around, I haven't been too happy.
I'm one of those rare people who likes the season of Advent, loves to decorate and gives gifts because they make people smile and feel appreciated, instead of just because it's expected, and who thinks a lot about why I celebrate Christmas.
So, of course I'm an Obama fan, but if I'm going to have to watch a political Christmas ad, this is the kind I want to watch:
Of course, I haven't watched all of the politician's Christmas ads, but it would be really nice if there were more like this. He speaks to Christians and non-Christians (all Americans...how novel!), and has a positive message that ties into both the holiday season and his campaign, without being obnoxious.
