Hunter, you ask, “Has there ever been anybody in the modern era do so much with so little?” Well, actually, lots of people, starting with Obama. Of course I’m assuming your rhetorical question isn’t exclusively about money and formal organization.
We also know Huckabee is running for vice president. Given his Southernness, his drawing power in the former in his home region cannot be under-estimated. I’m not at all surprised he’s done well tonight where he’s done well. The question remains whether he can connect anywhere else at this point, and whether his limitations on that score won’t doom his chances to join McCain on the GOP ticket.
