I was rumaging around the net and found this article from Washington Post about how Mick Huckabee would play as the Republican candidate. The article says, in part:
“Wooten Johnson, a Democratic strategist based in Louisiana, said that Huckabee ‘isn’t flawed in the eyes of the Republican base. But more importantly, he has a record of being a true compassionate conservative. He will be able to attract those suburban voters that don’t want to vote for [a] Democrat.’
“What lessons can Democrats learn from Huckabee’s past political career? First and foremost, painting him as an extremist just doesn’t work. While Huckabee is likely more conservative than the average voter, he doesn’t come across as a fire-breathing conservative, and Democrats seeking to paint him as such have come up short before.
“Should Huckabee wind up as the GOP nominee, the traditional Democratic playbook might well have to be rewritten to cope with his unorthodox approach”
That must be why the liberal media is working so hard to coronate John McCain as the Republican nominee.
