While Mike Huckabee's comments are certainly appropo for the recent political event we call a national election, if you substitute the word "life" for politics we see the truth of his observation is even greater that the recent "process."
The apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 4, "...and be renewed in the spirit of your mind...."
"Politics is not an event but a process. We sometimes lose the events but it never gives us the right to stop being faithful to our principles that enlisted us in the process. We shall live to fight another day."
