    Mike Huckabee is the single most grounded, common sensical, straight shooting candidate in the race. He shows the courage to stand up for what he believes in and he truly believes what he says. He is NOT scripted and has the depth of knowledge to think on his feet and truly defeat anybody in a debate. Bring on Hillary.

    I hear Huckabee does a sick cover version of WASP's "Fcuk like a Beast"

    Of all the Republicans, he is most likeable...while I don't agree with him politically, on the human scale, he is pure brillance.

    I've never liked Presidential Candidates playing musical instruments. It's great Clinton knew how to blow a sax or Huckabee playing a 4-string bass... but come on – we need a Commander-in-Chief, not a Conductor-in-Chief.

    the only state Huckabee has a chance is in Iowa...and I think he is getting pushed by Giulliani so that his win there can throw off Romney.

    Then Giuliani can claim that Romney is a failure and kill his campaign. Meanwhile Huckabee does not have any cash to put up any sort of battle in any other state.

    Personally I do not think Huckabee stands a chance in hell in New Hampshire. He is only doing well in Iowa because he is a minister...there really aren't that many social conservatives in NH

    Why dosn't wikipedia do an article about Ron Paul. He was third in the conservative voters debate.

    One would think that in New Hampshire "live free or die hard" state, that Ron Paul would have much better chances than Huckabee.

    Uh Huckabee is no conservative. He left Arkansas in shambles. Just look at this website taxhikemike.org

    Just because he's a minister doesn't mean he's conservative!

    Mike Huckabee is an enemy of freedom and an affront to all American citizens.

    I really like this guy. I was intrigued by what I saw at the debate. At the moment he is the ONLY
    Republican running that I could actually get behind.

    I was actually one of those 952 Values Voters who attended and voted at the much-talked-about Summit last weekend. No one else generated the electricity Huckabee did. The other eight all sounded good as we sat in our seats and watched them, but Mike closed the gap between us, reaching out with passion and sweeping us into his vision with integrity, sincerity and sunny charm. He got my vote! Watch him for yourself and see what I mean.
