Did Huckabee Really Say That?

I've been flipping back and forth between the debates and football so I haven't caught everything, but reading some live-blogging accounts of the festivities uncovered this bit from Democracy Arsenal:

[8:31] Huckabee wants "vertical" politics, not "horizontal" politics. I kind of like that.

Vertical? Really?

This has been your crypto-evangelical vocabulary lesson for the day. Please adjust your glossaries accordingly.

MORE: Originally I thought "vertical" was some kind of drug slang that could substitute for "getting high" or "smoking up," etc. but I actually think John Podhoretz is on to something too.
