It's probably too late in the campaign for Huckabee to make a run at McCain, especially if there is any truth to the rumors of some sort of secret deal between the two.
Maybe his wife and kids want some inheritance. Also, IMO the whole debacle with Rush, Dole, etc. backfired. And finally, he keeps reminding us he is a businessman and a smart businessman knows when to cut his losses.
I doubt they'll actively campaign *for* her, just against McCain. Which I guess is the same thing, only the emphasis will be "None of the Above". "Re-Group for 12" - let the Democrats get left holding this bag of shit
A Hillary win is a win for the right-wing talk show hosts. I don't any of them are wanting 4 more years of having to defend a Republican president, especially with bad times coming
Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Aiding a surrender to terror? That's divisive garbage that only shows Romney's true colors. I'm glad to see him drop out, because I don't think John McCain needs to resort to these kinds of cheap shots to win the presidency. He can win on the issues and not on Swift Boat tactics. And winning without the Limbaughs and Dobsons of the world means we might actually get a REAL Republican and not some guy who hijacked the term and turned into something else.
I don't lean towards any particular party and if it comes down to McCain and Obama in November, I'd actually have a hard time deciding who's more deserving.
Don't mess with Superman Prime or he'll kill you to death!
That "aiding the surrender to terror" line was just garbage. I did like Obama's reaction to it though ...
"Well my reaction to Mitt Romney's comment that's the kind of poorly thought out comment that lead him to drop out," Obama said during a press avail on his campaign plane. "It's a classic attempt to appeal to people's fears that will not work in this campaign. I think that's part of the reason he was such an ineffective candidate."

THAT would be a nice three way race!
Way to young to throw his career away by doing that. I can almost bet the farm he wouldn't consider VP.
If he loses the nomination, he should kill myself working for Hillary and when she loses, pick up the pieces of the party. I would guess McCain is salivating over running against Hillary.
They had Ari Fleischer as one of the 800 or so talking heads on CNN on Super Tuesday, and he got a look like a wolf that found a henhouse with an open door when he was asked if the GOP would prefer to run against Clinton instead of Obama.
I am not so sure that the rebuilding of Iraq will cost nearly as much as people say it will. Cost us, anyway. The current figure for sales of oil by Iraq are those of a nation under embargo. After we are through, the embargo of course will be over.
