GOOD FOR MCCAIN: NY Times says Huck's decision to keep running is good for John McCain, essentially giving him an unchallenging reason for continuing publicity.
Mike Huckabee has so far shown neither the inclination to attack John McCain, nor the ability to expand his support significantly beyond his base of conservative Christians. That means his chances of actually taking the Republican nomination away from John McCain are much closer to none than to slim.
WHEELING AND DEALING: Yes, a deal was cut on that West Virginia Republican convention vote.
WHAT'S UP WITH KANSAS: Important anti-abortion lobby endorses The Huckster.
BEST REASON YET TO OPPOSE HUCK: Dobson endorsement.
