The EFM Feature

My last post got me thinking — I know, watch out, it’s a rarity.
Question for our brilliant readers: What’s the difference between Governor Huckabee’s now-explicit message (“Vote for me because I’m an evangelical and you are too”) and Senator Clinton’s theme of “Vote for me because I’m a woman and you are too?”
Further question: We conservative evangelicals claim to loathe identity politics when we hear the latter — or declarations that blacks should only vote for blacks, etc. — but will we be consistent when “one of our own” uses the same line of argument?
