Washington Post columnist Zach Goldfarb included this fun-poking tidbit today on Mike Huckabee's Sunday talk show appearance:

HUCKABEE'S STRATEGY: Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, a 2008 Republican presidential hopeful, offered two eyebrow-raising glimpses of his strategy on CBS's "Face the Nation."

Asked about the $500,000 he raised in the first quarter of the year, compared with the tens of millions raised by the leading GOP contenders, Huckabee said, "I could raise $20 million overnight if everyone watching this show just simply went and said, 'I'll make a $100 contribution.' " Host Bob Schieffer noted, "That's kind of a big if."

Huckabee was also asked why he called Democratic candidate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) focused, disciplined and brilliant. He replied that his comments show why he's best suited to take her on: "I know . . . how dangerous she can be as a candidate," Huckabee said.

Oh, and he said he doesn't think he would accept a position in a Clinton Cabinet.
