Who is the power behind the throne with Huckabee?
I caught a bit of Diane Rehm this morning. The reporter was saying that Huckabee NEVER gets asked anything about foreign policy. He always gets the religious questions. So my question is, who would really be running things in a Huckabee administration?

6. Do you mean "who would be running things INTO THE GROUND in a Huckster administration?"
The answer is: Huckabee and any Republican he runs with, any Republican he puts in his cabinet. Unless Huckster is able to raise Abraham Lincoln from the dead and convince him to be his VP, of course.

7. We should ask that question about every candidate.

Here's a clue, it ain't us(the people).

8. He has a reputation for being extremely gullible, latching on to any idea
that sounds good without doing homework (like the Fair Tax, and his immigration plan). So, his foreign policy will be under the influence of whomever gets to him first and sells the product the best. Just like...someone else we know.

Who persuaded him to pardon that rapist (because he only raped a Clinton, after all)? :grr:

10. But which part of the Religious Wrong?
Robertson says God told him to endorse Mayor 9u11ani. Falwell is burning in Hell. Which dominionist freak is pushing the Hucklebeast?

(Besides Chuck Norris, who is a minor player in the battle to force Bible teaching into public schools)
