So, Mike Huckabee won't be seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States in 2012. Why am I not surprised? Why should he? He's got a great gig going with Fox News and a sphere of influence there that is big enough to keep him happy. He made the announcement on his show last night saying
“I can’t know or predict the future, but I know for now, my answer is clear and firm: I will not seek the Republican nomination for president this year.”
So snicker away everybody. Huck had it right and while he puts it all in rather mealymouthed, sweet-Jesus terms, he has made a wise choice-- and a shrewd one as well. ( Notice that he leaves the door open for a draft )
When you are dealing with a field that potentially includes narcissistic whackos like Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachman, and possibly even, La Palin ( because who knows what she will do next) the smart money stays on the sidelines and makes money as a talking head on Fox News.
Good thinking, Huck. Now I want to know who you are going to endorse, or are you just sitting on the sidelines and waiting for a popular draft?
