The EFM Feature

I hear the same thing almost everywhere I go: “Huckabee won’t run!” The reasons differ (some speculate that the clemency issue will keep him from running, others say he’s just making too much money on Fox to run for president), but I hear it all the time.
Color me unconvinced.
He keeps polling well in a wide-open Republican race. When was the last time that a past candidate who polled that well in pre-campaign polls declined to run?
I’d be shocked if he didn’t run. I think he’ll run again, compete hard, and eventually lose. I don’t think he can beat Sarah Palin (whose more conservative and more charismatic), and he’s just too weak outside the South to beat Mitt. (And there’s some evidence that Mitt will do better in the South than many people think).
