I have to say I don't buy what Rollins says about Fox not letting Mike announce a run on his show.

I believe it was posted a few days ago that Janet was really gung-ho about the whole thing.

The elites that buy on intrade are probably a lot less skeptical of Rollins than we are. Maybe I should head over to Intrade and buy a little bit...

Mike Huckabee to announce running for president on Intrade is crashing right now.

Earlier today it was at 64+ now it is down to 37 and falling.

:(

This worries me more than anything (including Rollin's comments).

It is sad to say but "insider" trading rules the markets.

Someone knows something. :balling

Take a look at it this way. Romney, his biggest archrival self-destructed yesterday. If Huck announces, he can take advantage of it and ride to the virtually top going into the Ames Straw Poll. This is a really big opportunity for Huckabee politically.

Furthermore, as I said before, when Huck went and did the history videos, there was no need to do so if Hucks income was assured for the next year and beyond. He is making plenty of money doing the show. The fact that he did so is what I bet a strategem at making sure he has got some money during the campaign season.

Furthermore, it looks like the establishment is going to cut Romney at the knees by going for Daniels, meaning that a split has opened in the enemy ranks.

That and Huck has never been very popular with the Intrade crowd.

Is it possible that it is an "announcment of an announcment?" Something like...I am seriously considering running and will make an official announcment on August 14.

As for intrade, you have to remember that there is a reason why it is outside the United States. It is an illegal form of gamblign after all. Besides, no one should guess political fortunes based on intrade because intrade is only an indicator of what people will think happen. Many of them are hedging their bets right now and going with the safe assumption.

That doesn't mean he can't change his mind. Several major things have happened in the political world since then. I think that some of you guys are boxing him in on the timetable for the announcement.
you missed my post about Daniels and Christy?

As I was driving to the Dallas speech, I said a prayer of discernment for Huckabee. That he would hear God's still, quiet voice, on what would be best.

Huckabee asked us all to be praying for him. That he would make a decision based on what he felt inside.

Looks like Huckabee heard the message that he had been praying about.

Now we just have to wait until Saturday night to hear from Huckabee what that decision is......

Will the clue be the purple tie that I gave him on his Texas booktour??

Meaning forming an exploratory committee. Yes, it could be something like that, but he will be most certainly suspended while making the decision.

I don't think he would be hyping things up like this if he wasn't going to run.

No I didn't. Make no mistake, Daniels, Harbour, and Christie represent the establishment. This is good news because this is going to cut Romney at the knees.

Mike Huckabee didn't strike me as the sort of guy to raise people's hopes up and then crush them along with the hopes.

The way he's going, I'd say he's getting cut off at the hips. And I'm being generous. I'm also confident that if Mike has made a decision, he hasn't shared it with anyone but Janet and his family.

Agree Stephen. I mean, he has a campaign in waiting. He has good poll numbers. His biggest rival just collapsed. He has a stable income.

Why not run? Me thinks it's more likely he didn't tell Rollins because Rollins won't be campaign manager this time around (why, that's anyone's guess).

It's a very personal announcement. IMHO, he wanted it to remain that way until he was able to tell everyone. Unlike the announcement a few weeks ago that our favorite terrorist had been killed, which spread like wildfire 3 hours before the speech was given.

another side note, if he were going to tell them, maybe he just hadn't given them the call yet...
