I wrote on my blog back in 2011 that Huckabee’s hints that he might run for President in 2012 was one big tease. He never could give up the lifestyle which he has become accustomed to run for President. Maybe to be President, but not just for the chance at President involving a grueling primary and general election.
I was right as he announced on his show in May of 2011 that he would not run, saying “all the factors say go, but my heart says no.”
Hmm. Well, it’s 2013 and here we go again.
Huckabee tells the conservative website Newsmax that he may run for President in 2016… maybe.
“Yeah, I’m not ruling it out at this point,” said Huckabee when asked if he would run in 2016. “I’m not sitting around having meetings with the strategic team, but it’s something I will certainly look at and I’m talking to some people just to determine whether it’s a kamikaze raid or whether it has potential and possibility.”
I imagine we will need to watch his TV show weekly, listen to his radio show daily, and buy the annual book he cranks out to know for sure.
The tease continues…
