Bill Clinton, Gingrich agree on Huckabee as GOP dark horse

“I think Huckabee is very effective, and if Huckabee can find money, he will be dramatically competitive almost overnight he’s probably the best performer in terms of giving speeches and being appealing…” --Newt Gingrich


We have another Newtonian prediction supported by the Clintonian scholar. It seems Huckabee is raising more eyebrows beyond just grass root Americans. These political dinosaurs think, given the right circumstances, Huckabee could be a formidable contender for ’08. He is my first choice, but like most people thought, I just didn’t think the US would be interested in a Baptist pastor. Maybe we were wrong.

As I have said in a previous post, Huck doesn’t have to sell himself but has to sell the American Dream and denounce all the hypocrisies and contradictions of liberalism and the current Democratic Party. Wherever there is an audience—5 people, or 5 thousand, you should see Mike talking up the constitution, our responsibilities to that great contract, and the need to protect that freedom. For me, talking-up spreading democracy is a cherry on his political cake reminding us of Reagan.

There’s one more thing—“scandal”. Mike Huckabee can have no dirt under his fingernails. If it is publicly known and dealt with, people can forgive that. If it pops up out of the woodwork, he is dead man. This nominee will be scrutinized more than any candidate in history. If he has no scandal, can stand up for the America Edwards doesn’t believe in, and if he can raise some more cash, I think America just might be ready for him, especially in these morally confusing times.
