GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee did more than just give a speech at the North Carolina Republican Party convention. He also may have saved a life.

State GOP spokesman Brent Woodcox says the former Arkansas governor did the Heimlich maneuver on Robert Pittenger, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, at a lunch before Huckabee gave his speech Saturday.[continued]

It was reported that Hillary recently threatened to use the Corbomite Maneuver, but that was apparently a false alarm.

I read an article about a year ago that said Bill Frist and David Petraeus first met way back when Petraeus was still a Captain running training drills and Frist was an army surgeon. Petraeus was accidentally shot during a drill and it was Frist that operated on him and saved his life.

Thought that was pretty interesting.
