Oops, Bonnie Erbe in her US News and World Report blog dares to depart from Beltway media orthodoxy. Maybe, she suggests, Mike Huckabee isn't so swell in every respect after all.
She notes Wayne Dumond; computer crushing; the Mansion spending account scandal. And raises the always pertinent question:
Destroying records? Misusing mansion funds? Helping a convicted rapist? Would Clinton still be a viable candidate if she faced such stories? Would Rudy Giuliani? Methinks not.
AND ONE MORE THING FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL WATCH: While Huckabee is in third, but a statistical deadheat for second in Iowa, where Religious conservatives dominate the GOP caucus, he's trailing even Ron Paul in New Hampshire. He'll need a might big bounce from Iowa.
