Of late, many of the intelligent folks were dismissing the Presidential possibilities of one Mike Huckabee. After the tragic incident in recent months involving a criminal he pardoned as Governor of Arkansas, it was thought that pardon problems would be a pickle in primary season. But even more than that, one just didn’t get the sense that the Huckster was interested in running again. He has national tv and radio gigs now, and he just seems to be enjoying the heck out of himself.
But this past week is raising some eyebrows to the effect that old Mike might still have a hankering for the nation’s top job. A fascinating and lengthy profile of the ex-Arkansanian Governor appeared in the New Yorker. Then Huckabee cracked a drug joke at the expense of Parah Salin…
‘Is Palin inhalin?’! Gotta be one of the more humorous things said in recent memory.
But the most interesting of all these potential signs of a Huck-return came on Sunday, when Huckabee appeared with Chris Wallace on Foxnews Sunday. Skip to about 5 minutes in on this video and watch what the Huckster says about a potential run.
It is indeed too soon to tell if Huckabee will make a second effort at the White House. But it sure looks more likely than it did just a couple months ago.
