Huckster’s support is all media driven. He’s an empty suit like Obama.
I hope you are right, but I fear not.
I think Huckster has sort of stepped into a perceived void. While there are several legitimate socially conservative candidates, none of them can communicate their political positions in a way which resonates with evangelicals. Plus, he is sort of “likable” in that George W. Bush way. And he’s “compassionate” and a southerner and that is going to play pretty well in the primaries, at least leading up to Feb. 5. But...if he wins IA and SC, and performs admirably in NH and MI...and if he manages to WIN in FL, then watch out. Huckabee might just have a shot at this. Even with those early victories, he will get drubbed in NJ and Cali on Feb. 5. But I suspect in the midwest, Texas, OK, the rest of the south, he will do extremely well - whereas Giuliani would be looking to ride the wave of victory in each of those places where he would normally have some problems.
It is going to be an interesting two months.
