Three prominent GOP leaders — Rep. Eric Cantor, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — questioned whether Huckabee's lavender tie sends the "wrong" message to the party's base.

"I'm frustrated with all these people who are jockeying for the position to be the 'leader,'" Huckabee said. "It's almost like we're worried about who's going to be the drum major and we don't have a piece of music yet."


Observers also report whispers that the former governor may be losing his battle of the bulge.

Said conservative talk-radio host Scott Hennen,
"You don't see a lot of overweight drum majors."
