    These Republican icons are dropping like flies. There is a common theme developing as they "group spin" their message.
    Several weeks ago Haley Barbour explained his decision not to run as not having the necessary fire in the belly.
    Huckabee excused his decision as hot having the proper amount of heart to do it right.
    Patriotism and concern for fellow man seem to no longer be the reason to seek elected office.
    I miss the Kennedys.

    Huckabee is such a bad joke. Fox deserves him. He is no Christian and certainly is not presidential caliber. Good night, Mikey!!

    huckabee as been scared off; Obama has the incumbent advantage, and a strengthen popularity with the death of Osama. It costs about $700 million to campaign for President, if it's unlikely he could beat Obama, he's quite unlikely to spend that sort of money for a slim shot at the Presidency.
    Nevertheless, with Paul Ryan's budget making the Republicans toxic for people over 45 and soon to go on medicare and medicade, veterans etc there electoral odd are slimmer than earlier this year.

    Though in some states Obama still needs to contend with this: YouTube - Clarke & Dawe on the US Oil Spill

    and it'll be difficult for him to win Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and Florida.
    But I'm optimistic.
