I never thought I would say this but Mike Huckabee would make a better candidate.

I know how you feel about Mike H and I do understand; I doubt he will make a run for it, but there could be worse choices...

Mike Huckabee is at least likable and I believe he would be a good President, but America has moved too far left on social issues for Huckabee to have a chance. His chance would have been in 2004 had Gore won in 2000. Santorum doesn't even have a likable personality and is entirely one dimensional and I don't understand how he gets the support he does.

I am afraid you might be right: I know there were some issues he believed in that were not popular,but he is likeable, that is for sure and could probably work with both sides.

once you get a job on Fox you are done... done I tell you. He will win the base he already has locked up.. he won't win any new states in the EC either.
