Re: What Is Huckabee Thinking?

I think the desire to come in second is part of it. But I think a larger motivation is to establish himself as an undisputed leader of the populist, socially conservative wing of the party. There is an opening and he can fill it at relatively little cost to McCain, who is getting closer to clinching anyway. Huckabee hasn’t really gone negative against McCain but he has established himself as a spokesman for Republicans the other candidates haven’t reached and professional conservatives don’t understand. The longer Huckabee can go on collecting primary votes and delegates without — key caveat — embarrassing himself, it makes sense for him to continue. At least until McCain finally secures the nomination.
