Schneider: Huckabee gets back in the game

He can’t compete with Romney’s millions – this is the only way he has a level playing field.

Not that he’ll be the nominee – but he could get a boost out of this, which would keep him in the race a while longer. That’s a problem for Romney, who’s plugging himself as the conservative alternative.

Meanwhile, McCain’s being cautious and evasive for fear of offending conservatives – and opening up a vulnerability in the long term.

    This debate is totally ridiculous.. Huckabee and Ron Paul have had zero time compared to Romney and McCain. Huckabee gets back in the game??? I can't believe you bothered inviting him... if you weren't going to let them participate..
    this is just terrible for American.. we the people deserve a better service than this.

    I believe Ron Paul has been in the game, but sadly being always ignored by the media!! Then you wonder why the so called polls are low for Paul

    Huckabee is an adept manipulator and speaker (preacher) and knows what people want to hear. He doesn't appear to be a bad person but he's not up front and honest. He too is not a natural leader.
