Krusty Konservative: Huckabee needs to focus on Iowa
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
As you all know, I like Mike Huckabee. Maybe it's because I always seem to root for an underdog, but as a long time social konservative, I think Huckabee is the best evangelical running for President. Huckabee is a former Baptist preacher, solidly pro-life, and a supporter of traditional marriage. Most importantly he is a candidate who practices what he preaches, there is no question where he will come down on social issues or judges if he is elected President. The reason why I named Huckabee my "Breakout Kandidate for 2007" is because is he is hands down the best kommunicator out of the solid konservative kandidates in the race. Proof of this was at last week's Lincoln Dinner, Huckabee delivered a great speech while Brownback didn't excite anyone, and Tancredo remains a single-issue candidate. With everything that I mentioned above, I think Huckabee should be able to do well at the Ames Straw Poll this August. The only problem is Mike Huckabee is squandering a golden opportunity by not focusing on Iowa. Mike Huckabee needs to live in Iowa for the next three and a half months, if he doesn't he's done. He made some good buzz at the Lincoln Dinner but he has to follow it up.
