Prediction: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee Just Wants To Make Money, Will Not Run In 2012

May 14, 2011

UPDATE

Former GOP Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, at end of his Fox News show, says ‘my heart says no’ to presidential bid

There is no visible fire in the belly for a White House run from former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.  In an era when Potomac Fever can be spotted a year before the Iowa caucuses in the eyes of over a dozen wannabes, there is no indication whatsoever that Huckabee has any interest.

The reason this one time squirrel eater is not batting an eye about the White House is that there is money to be mined from packaging a personality who has potential campaign plans.  Like Sarah Palin, the former part-time Governor of Alaska, Huckabee has used his talents to make money.  Lots of it. 

There is nothing wrong with raking in cash, but it does seem to me that it cheapens the process if for no other reason you allow yourself to be a possible candidate just to make a dollar.  Or many hundreds of thousands of dollars as is the case with Huckabee.

Yet that is exactly what Huckabee has done.  Now that he is rich and has a mansion to call his own in Florida, some book deals, and that rambling show on FAUX News there is no need to choke down another chicken dinner in New Hampshire, or debate with Ron Paul about the latest lunacy that was beamed into his tin-foil hat.

While I do not like the way Huckabee used the process, I can fully understand why one would not want to be placed in the midst of the grueling presidential election process.
