A Formidable Candidate

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.

    I would have no vote for Huckabee unless he was the candidate. IMHO he is not a Conservative and his knowledge is an a rung lower than Obama’s about foreign relations. McCain is a better candidate, although not my first or second choice he will get my support.
    At this stage of the game and where Huckabee and Paul both stand in the contest, they should both drop for the good of the party Paul can do his run for Congress again and Huckabee can go to Arkansas, run for Governor and get elected sure. That would help the Republican party on both counts. However, both Paul and Huckabee have ego’s as big as Texas and they are hanging on by a spider web thread. That proves to me that they both are more worthless than I originally thought!
