His son, David, has been an involved member since 2002, joining at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. A Southern Baptist minister, Huckabee never belonged to a fraternity while at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia.
“In order to cram four years into a little more than two, there just wasn't a lot of time,” Huckabee said. “Time to be a part of things like that just wasn't available.”
Huckabee said he didn't have any preconceived notions about fraternities from movies such as "Animal House," which depicts fraternities in a negative light.
“That'd be like saying you have a concept of a hospital based on reruns of 'M*A*S*H,” he said.
Huckabee said he didn't know if joining TKE would give him a larger pool of supporters if he runs for president.
“We'll soon find out, won't we?” Huckabee said.
Hmmmm. I wonder if Barack Obama is a fraternity member - or would like to be?
