MSM asks candidates the tough questions: “What food do you hate?”

For me, it would be an easy question to answer: Natto. Natto is a Japanese dish made from sticky, rotted beans that smells like feet and tastes even worse. The texture of said dish is beyond repulsive. I once had to sit between two people in a sushi bar who were both eating natto, the aroma of the dish forming a greenish cloud around my head. The experience left me with a medium case of PTSD for a few months.
So the candidates got asked that question. Most of the answers aren’t that interesting, but two are.
Hillary manages to make it creepy:
New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: “I like nearly everything. “I don’t like, you know, things that are still alive.”
And Huckabee shows his nanny streak:
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: “Carrots. I just don’t like carrots. I banned them from the governor’s mansion when I was governor of Arkansas because I could.”
“…because I could.” What is it with Arkansas governors and that particular phrase?
