Joel Gehrke: Huck: I'm Better than the Others

In a roundtable meeting this morning with journalists in Washington, D.C., Huckabee said that he would decide next year whether or not he will run for president, but he already knows he's unlikely to support any of those freshman senators. "If not me, I would be supportive of someone who has had executive experience and who has been a governor prior to somebody having only had legislative experience, which I think is fundamentally different in the manner in which one serves," Huckabee said after describing what it takes to be a commander-in-chief.

Mike Huckabee leads in Iowa, that shows what's wrong with Iowa caucuses

Polling presidential races more than two years before Election Day is, as I've noted several times in the past, usually not nearly as important as the media organizations that publicize the polls make them out to be. Nobody has actually entered the presidential race on either side of the ticket, many of the potential candidates are people that, notwithstanding their constant appearances on cable news networks, are largely unknown to voters on the ground, and there's been virtually no real campaigning of any kind.

Mike Huckabee predicts "Sons of Ishmael" will lose battle for Middle East

Speaking at the far-right Christian group Focus on the Family's "Star Spangled Sunday" event this past weekend, former Arkansas governor and potential future presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tried to rally his fellow Christian conservatives to keep the faith and trust that God will ensure "the Sons of Isaac" defeat "the Sons of Ishmael" in the battle for control of the Middle East. Concluding his address before an audience that, if he were to run for president, would comprise much of his base, Huckabee compared the fate of the Middle East to that of his beloved Arkansas Razorbacks , whose rebroadcasts of men's basketball games he'd watch late at night despite already knowing the outcome.

Poll: Huckabee Clear Favorite in Iowa | Daniel Doherty

Two things are worth noting in the CNN/ORC survey released Friday vis-A -vis the 2016 presidential sweepstakes: Hillary Clinton, who is gearing up to head to the Hawkeye State as I write this , is leaps and bounds ahead of her fellow Democrats; and former Gov. Mike Huckabee is leading all of his presumed GOP rivals by double digits : According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 53% of all registered Democrats contacted in Iowa said they would support Hillary Clinton if the 2016 caucuses were held today. That number far outpaces the 15% that would opt for Vice President Joe Biden, 7% who would choose Sen. Elizabeth Warren and 5% who would pick Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Don Brunell | Labor Day epilogue: Partnering for success

Huckabee bashed those who detest unions and those who trash employers - and rightly so. Success today hinges on a balance between the "job creators" and the "job holders" based on mutual respect, fair treatment and job satisfaction.

The Republican field for 2016 must be very weak

I did have to laugh at the inaccuracy of this statement, made by the Republican businessman who organized the trip: "No one heard about Bill Clinton on his first trip to New Hampshire," Mayberry said. "I showed Mike Huckabee around the state years before he ran and no one knew him then, either.

Beebe: No politics in Leslie Rutledge's poor rating at DHS

A spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe today brushed away a suggestion that politics played a role in the addition of a "do not rehire" message to Leslie Rutledge's personnel file after she resigned as a staff attorney at the Department of Human Services in 2007. The Repblican candidate for attorney general raised that as a possible defense of her negative evaluation after it was disclosed last week.
