Huckabee ready to test his message

Washington (CNN) - Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he's using his upcoming book tour to gauge if his message resonates with voters before making a decision on whether or not to make a run for the White House in 2012.

"A Simple Government" hits book shelves Tuesday and describes his philosophy for the national debt, national security, international relations and family values. On a conference call with reporters Monday, he said his 41-city tour will also help him decide if "there is both financial and organizational support that warrants walking away from what I'm doing and getting back into the fray again."

Washington (CNN) – Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said there's no evidence to support the premise that the United States is "liked" more now that Obama is president, an idea touted by his supporters.

"No, and I don't think there's data that supports that," Rumsfeld said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "I think he has made a practice of trying to apologize for America. I personally am proud of America."
