Huckabee has said a lot of things on his show over the years. You can bet the democrats will nitpick at a lot of them.

I do NOT agree with much of the social conservative stuff from the likes of Huckabee, but he is one smooth talker. He can discuss a wide range of topics off the cuff, due to his preacher and television personality experience and his natural aptitude, which probably pulled him in those directions.

If it meant winning, I could easily support Huckabee on a ticket, preferably not on the top. Paul-Huckabee, or Walker-Huckabee.

These forums tend to attract the extremes, so Cruz gets more praise than he gets national support.

But I also like the idea of an Hispanic on the ticket. Cruz, Rubio, Martinez of Sandoval.

Finally I like successful governors which argues for Perry or Walker etc.

This is anyone's race.  The quality of potential candidates seems far superior than in 2008 and in 2012.  I am looking forward to the debates.

It would be nice to vote some of them off the island, before the start.

After it is all said and done I will vote for Barney Rubble on the ticket over Clinton. I think the media and republicans have defined Cruz as extreme.

I fear that the Rand Paul or no one else libertarians and the Iowa Huckabee or no one else folks- will cancel each others vote out as they stay home. Much like the Palin or nobody- I won't hold my nose again crowd. Huckabee is a social/fiscal conservative moderate. Maybe this is where his appeal is? He does not get me fired-up but maybe this is why he fired up some people?

Agreed.
