Campaign watch

Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2007 at 5:36 AM

CORRUPT: Judicial Watch issues a list of the country's most corrupt politicians. It's a bipartisan affair. Both Hillary Clinton and Mike Huckabee are recognized.

WEDGIE: Bloomberg writes about the wedge Mike Huckabee has driven between Religious Right Republicans and country club Republicans.

NO MORE SENOR NICE GUY: More commentary on Huck's flip-flop on immigrants.

MORE POLLING: Clinton well in the lead among Democrats. Huck and Giuliani lead a severely splintered Republican field. (Neither has half the support among Repubs that Clinton enjoys among Dems.)

IN THE MONEY: Washington Post notes how The Huckster continues to rake speaking fees. Also notes how Giuliani stopped after entering race and notes how Wesley Clark caught so much grief in 2004 for taking speaking fees -- it could be viewed as backdoor contributions -- that he refunded the money. Don't hold your breath for  a Huckster refund. Or for the media to push him hard on it. He's a nice guy, you see.

BHUTTO ASSASSINATION: Huckabee responds. CBS notes he apparently didn't know that  martial law had been ended in Pakistan a couple of weeks ago. Or misspoke. The miscue prompts comment from a previously reliable source of pro-Huckabee commentary in The Atlantic.
