Obama, Kenya and Portman: Is Huckabee Letting 2012 Slip Away?
TV and radio host Mike Huckabee is embracing his true inner talker. You can't buy the kind of attention he has attracted in the past week, and just when he's pushing sales of a new book.
Huckabee is also trying to stay on the public radar screen as a potential late entry into the 2012 presidential race -- and why not? The former Arkansas governor leads in polls of the nascent Republican field, both nationally and in the key states of Iowa and South Carolina.
But there's a price. The further Huckabee goes down the road he's on, the less seriously he's taken as a presidential aspirant.
