Krauthammer said he had been hoping Ryan would run to win not just the White House but the national debate.

“If Republicans are serious about changing the course of the country, they should win on a serious platform of ideas that I think a Ryan-like candidate could present,” he said. “Then you’d get a mandate.”

Yet even as the field of potential ideas candidates shrinks, some intellectuals refuse to take no for an answer.

Kristol, who flipped his ideal ticket and blogged “How about Rubio-Ryan?” after the Budget chairman put out his statement Monday, said in such a fluid race he didn’t see any pressing time frame for a candidate to get in.

The dream candidate can wait, he chuckled, “until the filing deadline.”

“We’re courting somebody to come court us,” quipped Ponnuru.

So my question is, could Gov. Huckabee go to these types - Kristol and Krauthammer, etc. - and sell himself to them? Could he get their backing if he made a pledge to them to be a idea candidate; one who will focus on the debt crisis? Can Huckabee be a more attractive alternative than Perry or Romney to the Republican intellectuals?

I don't think Krauthammer would approve of Huckabee:

And some conservative thinkers have very specific concerns.

“I would hope that whoever the Republican candidate is, he or she will not tell us that creationism or intelligent design is the equivalent of evolution — just another theory about the origins of the biological man,” said the syndicated Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, who declined to weigh in on specific candidates, though Perry was recently recorded telling a young boy on a rope line that Texas schools teach both theories. “To put intelligent design on that level is like offering grade-school children a choice between astronomy and astrology,” he said.
