Mike Huckabee made it official today--he's running for President. I really liked him in 2008. I would have voted for him back then if I had the chance. Not too sure about his consumption tax idea, seems like it would be the biggest tax break in history for the wealthy, while the rest of us would end up paying more in taxes overall. He's got the social issues nailed. I don't know much about his foreign policy ideas. He's likable, quick witted, and has a genuine friendliness about him. He's completely comfortable on TV and is a very effective communicator. Something the Republicans have not had since Reagan. I hope he takes Iowa and South Carolina and shakes up the process. Anything to keep Jeb from gaining traction. If he can hold on through Super Tuesday (March 1st) and make it to March 8th he's got a real chance. There's a lot of southern states holding primaries on those two dates, a region where he should do well.
