Not headed for Rolling Stone's cover

Posted By on Wed, May 30, 2007 at 6:43 AM

Tim Dickinson, writing in the Rolling Stone, puts Mike Huckabee's presidential odds at 80-1.

He gives him some pluses:

Ex- Governor of Arkansas wins points with social conservatives for his divorce-proof "covenant" marriage. Nails the language of compassionate conservatism: "we can't say we're pro-life if, after the child is born, we're not concerned about affordable housing, decent education and adequate access to health care."

Also some minuses:

Disliked by anti-tax right for "expanding government." Raised only $544,000 in the first quarter, Holds a concealed-carry permit: son was busted trying to board a plane with a loaded  Glock ten days after Virginia Tech.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
