Draft Mike Huckabee for GOP presidential race

Posted By on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 11:00 AM


Here's one blogger's solution to the uninspiring presidential candidates — Draft The Huckster.

It's being passed around a bit by other Huckabee fans. His Facebook page is full of fans imploring him to run. His own TeamHuck Twitter account notes draft movement. He's a stronger candidate than any of those currently on the stage. Talk about hot if it boiled down to Mitt Romney, with a bag full of bucks, and Huckabee, with a bag full of barbs and gag lines.

UPDATE: A Talking Points Memo column on Republican difficulties in finding a perfect candidate suggests the problem may not be the candidates but the "angry elephant" — the Republican base.
