Huckabee is inMike Huckabee made it official on Meet the Press this morning, he will run for the Presidency. I do not share Huckabee's newly-former infatuation with President Bush, but Huckabee does not strike me as a warmonger. I think if Huckabee were elected, he would likely look for an honorable way out of the situation in Iraq.
Huckabee's pro-life credentials are solid-he is a Baptist minister, after all. Unlike our current Chief Executive who talks the pro-life talk, I have no trouble at all believing that Huckabee would walk the pro-life walk. He would not merely be a pro-life president in name, he would take concrete action, and Congress be damned. He would continue to give us strict constructionist judges for the federal bench.
After all of these plaudets, you might think I am about to endorse Mike Huckabee. His words to Tim Russert certainly did him no harm in my eyes, but I am not prepared yet to take that step. The campaign season hasn't even begun yet and I am not certain that all the candidates have declared, and there is at least one candidate (Ron Paul) who is probably the best option, but will he survive Iowa and New Hampshire? He may not make it that far.
The race for the Republican nomination just got very interesting.
