Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump had a one-on-one meeting last weekend, after a month where the former Arkansas governor has been quietly meeting with donors in New York as he weighs a run.
The meeting, which Huckabee mentioned in passing on Fox News on Monday, was in New York City during a weekend when the 2008 Iowa caucuses winner was in town taping his Fox TV show.
It was unclear what the two discussed, but sources familiar with the get-together suggested the meeting was part of Huckabee's recent listening tour with donors, since Trump would be a useful supporter if he himself didn't run for president, as he's flirting with right now. However, Trump has made increasingly clear to people around him that he's seriously weighing getting in.
Meanwhile, Huckabee has been holding a string of about a half-dozen meetings with donors or bundlers in New York, primarily from the finance industry, over the past 6 weeks, three sources told POLITICO....

They are all starting to look like lilliputians compared to this guy.
The media is so full of it. A story where there is no story.
Probably just a friendly meeting.
One where Trump says “Mike, you’re not going to win...unless...you run as my running mate.”
Maybe Trump is casting for “Hillbilly Apprentice” or some such.
Yeah no kidding: “A couple of guys met”. Film at eleven...
I don’t think we learned anything new here other than Huckabee might run. LOL
I’m not voting for any ‘old boys club’ - I’m with Sarah, she’s the only one I trust and the only one who has not remained quiet in 2.5 yrs. She has the words and the actions behind it. This time I do things my way.
And the Huckster wore his stripped shirt for the casting.
Huckabee told him “I’ll let you be my veep” ‘cause he thinks he’s owed the nomination for keeping Romney down in 2008 by hanging in for McCain.
I’d support that ticket in a heartbeat over Obama.
What is that dog-torturing fan, squirrel-popping, lying fake preacher doing now? Keep your day job, phony huckster.
Then Donald laughed and said, “No, Mike, it’s the other way around.”
Not only “no”, but “hell, no!”
Fox had better cancel his show. Giving him free exposure to promote himself is not fair to other candidates who are thinking about running in 2012.
Let the huckster spend his own money campaigning!!

Hey Politico would go out of business if they had to only report real news.
I will be very unhappy if either Huckabee or Romney are the nominee..they are weak candidates with too much wishywashyness,
I would much prefer Michele Bachman who is not afraid to take a stand.. The women of the GOP have more guts than any of the men save for Marco Rubio..
