    Mike Huckabee Not Running

    Mike Huckabee Not Running

    Back in January I asked, So Tell Me About Mike Huckabee.  The comments were not very favorable.

    I was neutral to favorable on Huckabee.  But it’s not a choice.  He announced tonight that his heart is not in it.

    Now that Huckabee is out, what do you think?

    Updates – My thoughts in random order:

    • Whatever his shortcomings, Huckabee had an ability to connect with voters in a way few other candidates could.  We lost a good potential nominee.
    • This is the best day Mitt Romney has had in a long time.
    • This is the best day Tim Pawlenty has had in an even longer time.
    • There is only one motivational potential candidate left.
    • The MSM will coalesce behind Mitch Daniels, which will make it so much sweeter for them when they tear him down if he gets the nomination.
    • The notion that what we need is the non-Obama will grow; “first do no harm” will be the mantra.

    I wasn't for Huck because, it seemed, a lot of the liberals liked him. I like Cain and I like Palin. I think a lot of people are underestimating Palin. I don't think she's out of the picture at all.

    I agree with all your analysis but especially the following statement …. I have repeated it, because I believe it needs to sink in, sink in, sink in, for everybody …. and I have also modified it slightly ….

    "There is only one potential motivational candidate left."

    "There is only one potential motivational candidate left."

    "There is only one potential motivational candidate left."

    "There is only one potential motivational candidate left."

    In fact, IMV – there is only one candidate who is motivational to the extent that America absolutely NEEDS.

    Gov Palin will run for POTUS, and many of us believe it will be AFTER 2 years have elapsed since her resignation. At this point, no further bogus ethics charges will be able to be filed against her (the AK law regarding this was changed, I think at the end of 2009).

    Do you know whether our thinking about this '2 year' period is correct Professor?

    I'm hoping it helps Paul Ryan decide to get in the race.
