Mike Huckabee appeared as Jay Leno’s guest last night on the return of his show to late night, while Hillary Clinton introduced David Letterman on his return.
Clinton, taped from Iowa, was not faced with crossing a picket line as Letterman (and Craig Ferguson) cut deals with writers to bring them back. Leno, as well as Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel, were back without writers. Huckabee faced “scab” signs along with questioning about why he was crossing picket lines. Said chief union negotiator John Bowman: “Huckabee claims he didn’t know [the strike was still ongoing]. I don’t know what that means in terms of trusting him as a future president.”
In a Bill Clinton-esque turn, Huckabee showed off his musical talents, then discussed his rivals.
Below, Hillary’s brief intro.
