President Barack Obama is getting some lofty praise from an
unexpected source: a Republican.
According to Politico
, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour appeared Sunday on "Meet the Press" and lauded Obama as one of the best politicians ever.
"The president is one of the greatest politicians in the history of the United States," Barbour said during a conversation about the protests in Wisconsin over Gov. Scott Walker's attempt to curb collective bargaining rights for public sector workers.
