Huckabust?

Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal has an interesting piece on the relatively unmined background of presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee. His tenure during his administration as governor of Arkansas and as an active member of the Southern Baptist Convention pose some ethical questions. Strassel posits that they could be a time bomb for the GOP should he win the nomination.

Peggy Noonan addresses the somewhat controverisal Christmas ad featuring Huckabee. Also an interesting read.

There has been some discussion of Huckabee at In Rare Form as well.

The most interesting quote from the article:
"the Democratic National Committee has released 102 direct attacks on Mitt Romney. Rudy Giuliani has warranted 78; John McCain 68; Fred Thompson 21. Mike Huckabee? Four. The most recent of these landed back in March. GOP voters may not have examined Mr. Huckabee's record, but the left has--and they love what they see."

I don't think Huckabee will get the nomination, but if he does, the Republicans will regret it for a long time.
