An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
“All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several national polls, said on his Fox News Channel show.
“The past few months have been times of deep personal reflection,” Huckabee said. “Even though I wasn’t actively establishing a campaign organization or seeking financial support to run again, polls have consistently put me at or near the top to be the Republican nominee.”
“But I know that under the best of circumstances, being President is a job that takes one to the limit of his or her human capacity,” he continued. “I can’t know or predict the future, but I know for now my answer is clear and firm: I will not seek the Republican nomination for President this year.”
I’m not really disappointed that Huckabee isn’t running. While he is a good man, a man of honor, and MUCH preferable to what we’re stuck with right now. Unfortunately, one who has announced,Ron Paul, unequivocally, that he is running, when most sane people can’t, and won’t vote him. Sometimes, I just don’t get it. Maybe that’s a good thing.
Now, who will end up as the nominee? Who knows. But hopefully, someone will step forward that we can all get behind. No, we will never have the perfect candidate, one who will meet everyone’s list of ‘qualifications’. But seriously, do we really more of the Obama administration? I don’t care if the nominee isn’t who YOU would have preferred. Think of the alternative! “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, and we won’t be able to restore our nation overnight.
