Today, former Governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Hillary Clinton talked to AARP members about health care and financial security, two issues we know are important to AARP members. Huckabee and Clinton both mentioned AARP's Divided We Fail effort and how important these issues are for the candidates to discuss.
Sometimes the fare was light, such as when Governor Huckabee reminded us that he was a member. But things were serious when both candidates talked about the importance of going beyond politics.
"It's time to go beyond politics as usual. There are not Republicans or Democratic solutions to the problems we face," said Senator Clinton.
Huckabee also piped in, "I am a former Governor and didn't have the luxury of being an ideologue."
All the major presidential candidates were invited to address the event.
