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.
