According to the AP, Mike Huckabee, Baptist preacher cum politician, is in the lead in Iowa. And I’m pretty sure I won’t be the first to use that headline, but I might edge out the AP by a few hours with it.
Will Huckabee do well nationally, what with his “shut down the IRS, usage tax, theocracy” platform? I hope not, but then, I thought Bush Jr. would fail nationally too. I can’t see him doing especially well in New Hampshire, though. But I’m nothing but thrilled to see him bloodying Mitt Romney’s nose.
And how about Barack Obama? Rarely has a candidate done so well on a promise to do things differently.
