I like this article, here an extract:

While the pundits gush over Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Scott Walker, history favors Huckabee, Santorum, and Jeb Bush. From 1968 and on, the GOP has nominated former presidential candidates who performed well during their prior campaigns, sitting presidents, and the scion of a well-known political dynasty. Huckabee and Santorum fit into the first category and Jeb Bush fits into the last.

Cruz, Rubio, Walker, Rand Paul, and the rest are all running against the tendencies and temperament of the Republican electorate. While political junkies and the news media thrill to each new candidate to announce, history shows that when the rank and file GOP voters focus on the presidential race, historically, they have been unimpressed with “fresh blood” and “new candidates” and have gone with the known quantities who are tried and true.

This isn’t to say past performance will dictate the future, but it does say there’s a good reason for Huckabee to believe he’ll be a serious contender long after many others have fallen away. Many of the excited bloggers who exalt the trio of Freshman senators and Scott Walker once were singing the praises of Tim Pawlenty (who dropped out after the Iowa Straw poll) while Glenn Beck spent much of 2011 trumpeting Michelle Bachmann, whose campaign didn’t make it to New Hampshire.

Read it all:

He is no fool, who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose. -Jim Elliot

This is an excellent article with reasons why Governor Huckabee's viability as a candidate looks better than the major media or Glenn Beck might think. It blasts away the cynics who come up with outrageous ulterior motives they ascribe to Huckabee as he runs for President.

Huckabee has likeability, experience in governing, and a past run for President--all factors that put him ahead of most other candidates.
