Politico has a great article about Mike Huckabee:
A governor for 10 years and the winner of the Iowa caucuses in 2008, Huckabee should by all rights have a claim to be the early favorite for the Republican nomination. But former Gov. Mitt Romney, the candidate he bested in Iowa 2008 and for whom he does not attempt to contain his contempt, is riding high, credited by many Republicans as the best person to run against President Barack Obama in a down economy. And as Huckabee works his way through a 22-state tour for his new book, “A Simple Christmas,” he knows that he and the book will be almost entirely overshadowed by former Gov. Sarah Palin’s two-week barnstorming tour for her forthcoming memoir.
In this short interview, he manages to slam Gov. Romney, again — the reporter remarks that Gov. Huckabee doesn’t bother to hide his distaste for him. Nevertheless, it’s a great read… and sadly a premonition of the acrimony to come.
