WASHINGTON - Republican Mike Huckabee on Saturday said he won't quit the presidential race and rejected suggestions that John McCain is the party's inevitable nominee, saying the GOP "better have a candidate who's battle-tested."

huckabee already proved that he is willing to proverbially cut the baby in half to get his way. i am proud of romney for stepping down, though i am not sure that i will stay in the party after all this. republicans lately have been trotting out some pretty unsavory candidates, from george bush to now john mccain. what happened to fiscal conservatism? what is the point of fighting in iraq if we do not even bother to secure our borders so terrorists can just march across?

Huck is salivating for the VP spot with McCain and wants his name to stay out there in the media.

Mike Huckabee is the only GOP candidate that would get my vote, this time around. I speak as a lifelong Republican.

He is a man of profound decency whose adherence to the traditions of real Conservatism, as opposed to catering to a bunch of Wall Street yuppies, is too admirable for words.

I'll certainly vote for any democrat if Huckabee wins nomination.
This nation is way lag behind in producing its own scientists and engineers. No priest as a president or vice president, thank you.

My own personal theory is that Huckabee is going to stay in a little while longer to the point he gets the support of all the social conservatives and people that loved Romney. I don't agree with Huckabee on many social issues, I'm more of a social moderate and fiscal conservative that understands and keeps up with many scientific issues such as global warming so I'm more of a McCain fan, but you got to admit Huckabee's a darn likable, funny guy. And I would respectfully disagree with floridasandy becaues I think McCain is easily considered best-known fiscal conservative in many years touting cutting pork-barrel spending and smaller government proposals. But Huckabee is always so charming on every interview and his Colbert appearance on Thursday was the best proof in my opinion playing air hockey with Texas. Once he's consolidated the very conservative support, he'll continue his tone of being respectful and liking McCain up until the point that it's clear the party can be united with a McCain/Huckabee '08 ticket.

huckabee is the populist republican candidate, which is definitely going to work for some people who do not examine his arkansas fiscal record. (which i have posted before, including shooting up the state's general obligation debt by almost 1 billion dollars!) being a funny guy is, sadly, not enough to entitle you to lead an entire nation.
