Huckabee's 12 Steps: Will They Lead to Another Campaign?

-- "I believe that every American has a right and responsibility to speak up when they're unhappy with the way our government is run, and that's why I'm writing this book," Huckabee says in the introduction. "Because as much as I respect President Obama as a human being, I can't help but think that just about everything he thinks is good for America is actually bad for our present and worse for our future." -- "America will be looking for a thoughtful, mature, seasoned, and tempered leader, but that search will likely be lost in a sea of 'gotcha' games while political hacks and media hit men look for the slightest aberration in a candidate's history," he writes. "I actually dread the process, having been through it before and contemplating whether to enter it again." -- One passage puckishly underscores Huckabee's preoccupation with providing for his family. After saying his book "is intended for about 80 percent of the American people," Huckabee writes: "And if just half of that group would read it and take it to heart, my wife and I would be set for quite a few of the golden years!"
