Are GOP contenders running for president or playing political games?

(CNN)–A number of GOP presidential contenders have formed exploratory committees - allowing them to raise money and hire staff - to build a campaign infrastructure. Depending on how that paperwork was filed, some of them are technically already running for president.

However, many of these prospective candidates are purposefully being vague about whether they are actually planning to launch a full presidential campaign and how long they intend to explore their options. CNN Correspondent Lisa Sylvester looks at whether political games are being played.

Huckabee blasts Glenn Beck

(CNN)- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a bone to pick with Glenn Beck. The current Fox News host isn't pleased that Beck, a departing Fox News host, has called him a progressive, a term which Beck has also previously likened to cancer and the Nazi movement.

Beck also compared Huckabee to Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain on his radio show Tuesday, labeling both as progressives, because of Huckabee's vocal support for Michelle Obama's anti-obesity initiatives.
