Mike Huckabee will be in the front ranks of a group of evangelicals planning a news conference next week to try to bring the presidential campaign back to the important issues.
Not jobs. Not the deficit. Not the war. Not health care. Not the housing crisis. Not gasoline.
No, you know. The important stuff. Abortion, same-sex marriage, stem cell research.
I've been wrong before, but I think Huckabee's solid alignment with this group as the rising Jerry Falwell/Pat Robertson of the next generation might not be the best long-term career move for him politically. Financially? Sure.
