I am a Christian, and I share the same core values as Mike Huckabee. He is Pro-God & Christ Jesus, Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-Marriage between a man and a woman.

I don't think he had a snowball's chance in hell to begin with.

He had potential but I'm sick of these dillusional people who push their faith on others in political offices. But maybe he would have been different, God only knows. He seemed normal to me.

Of the major Republican candidates who stayed in the race for a while, I think Huckabee was by far the best. He is charasmatic, and unlike many of the candidates, he has real experience in an executive branch of government. He also wasn't afraid to say where he stood on issues. With Huckabee, it seemed like you could at least believe what he said. In addition, I feel that one major advantage he had over McCain was age. At 52, Huckabee isn't a senior citizen like McCain.

He was fine but not my choice. I generally avoid clergyman in politics.

Wasn't a supporter, he was too much of a populist for me.

Mike Huckabee has done excellent considering the amount of money he spent. He is a man who truly cares about America, and has the experience to back that up. He is one of the only candidates who has not changed his stances. He is clear whenever he debates. Because of these factors, I give him a 5 star rating.

ditto with blue47.

Can you believe this theocratic crook? He wants to change, or trash I should say, the Constitution. And they get mad when they say Christians are atrocitries? Well? He even had a fundraiser in Texas with televangelist weirdo Kenneth Copeland, who is being investigated by the U.S. Senate for illegal personal use of church funds!

He's too hideous to ever be president, and that's saying A LOT!

He seems like someone I can trust. His record is excellent in Arkansas.

I don't believe it matters much who the Republicans nominate as the designated loser. It's the Democrats' turn to rule because they always get the job of replentishing the treasury after the corporations have looted every dime during a Republican administration.

Unfortunately (because I'm only 99% convinced Hillary has already been chosen president) I registered independent and therefore can't help the Democrats win by voting for Rev. Huckabee in the Republican primary.

That people actually seem interested in him causes shudders in the educated. . .we don't need another president who thinks creationism is a splendid fairy tale and rejects science and progress that offends ancient dogma. . .the trailer-park vote victory in Iowa made some noise, but the smarter states have begun to put Mikey right were he belongs- in the back of the polls, the pews, and on the logical list of potential leaders.

Huckabee is an interesting candidate. On the one hand, he's a social conservative, yet not stridently so. He definitely doesn't come from the Pat Robertson-Jerry Falwell circle, that's probably why the institutional Christian right hasn't fallen behind him. The rank-and-file voters within the movement are supporting him, as demonstrated by his convincing victory in Iowa. For his part, Huckabee is quite an engaging speaker, and that in part may be contributing to his success, especially against this field of candidates, which as a whole are rather lack-luster.

What makes him unique is that he's a social conservative with fairly liberal economic views. Government isn't the enemy for Huckabee. He is fairly amenable towards social spending and believes that we need to do more to take on global warming. This is a departure from the Christian right, which historically has allied itself closely with business interests. On foreign policy, he is solidly on the neo-conservative camp, but he isn't afraid to criticize George Bush's policies either. In short, he's not an establishment Republican like the Bushes and Romney: he comes from the grassroots.

Huckabee is painting himself as a reform candidate seeking to revitalize the GOP. Most of the other candidates are "status-quo" candidates, but really only Huckabee and Ron Paul acknowledge that the party will lose ground in 2008 if they don't re-assess parts of their platform. The main hindrance for Huckabee winning the nomination is a lack of funds. It is going to be tough for him to compete in the Super Tuesday states where a lot of cash is needed to advertise. Also I suspect that Huckabee is more of a regional candidate. That he is not doing so well in New Hampshire suggests that his appeal might be more limited to parts of the Midwest, Great Plains and the South. That's something to consider if the party should give him the nomination. Will he be able to grow the party and be competitive in the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic and California? Probably not, historically candidates like him have underperformed in those areas. But he can shift towards the center, which may help him in the general election. If the Democrats can successfully tag him as an extremist, he's done.

Yes, this is the message we want to send to the whole world right now. "Hey look everyone, we just elected another evangelical christian like GWB! He's all ready to spread our crusade to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia."

He seems like a solid candidate but I disagree with him on Iraq. I believe we have done all we can do with this foreign civil war and we need to get our troops home. I like his stance on abortion. I guess I'm just a Demopublican.

A nice enough guy, but he kind of falls into the "I guess we could do worse" catagory for me. He did catch my attention long enough to take a closer look, but once I did there was a lot I didn't like seeing. He's just a little too shaky on some issues for my taste. I do agree with him on some things, just not most of the ones I see as being the most important right now.

What the world doesn't need now is another "preacher" in the White House. Although I'm sure the prayers he would offer up would be, unlike Dubya's, at least semi-coherent and literate. Not that the end result would be any different. How about facing up to the world's myriad problems with intelligence and diplomatic skills as opposed to "prayers"?

He's surging. He's likable and folksy, with solid social conservative credentials. Fiscally, he is a populist - and would probably bring on more GWB big government, big spending conservatism.
