So yeah, we've been touting all the news that going in Huckabee's favor . . .
Of course we're not rooting, but it's hard not to admire an underfunded underdog campaign no matter what your persuasion.
Still, to be fair, here's an AP article that highlights the case against Huckabee:
1) SOFT ON TAXES, AND CRIME? . . . He hiked millions of dollars in taxes for highways and paroled a rapist that later killed a woman right here in Missouri.
2) ROMNEY'S IOWA ORGANIZATION . . . Is Better. Huckabee has so far relied on a full-time team of 2 in Iowa. But Iowa is all about organization, and the one thing Romney's money will buy him there is people to help organize his supporters on caucus night. Huckabee still needs to catch up there or Romney will best him.
3) CAN HE GO THE DISTANCE? Like it or not, people still talk about Huckabee as a "great V.P." He'll need to WIN Iowa to change that. But in the next month, he'll probably need his poll numbers to improve nationally and at least in South Carolina to prove he's more than a one-state-wonder.
