Drudge says Dems rooting for Huckabee

The theory is that the religious extremist from Arkansas would be, by far, the easiest Republican to beat in next year's presidential election.

The Rascal has long figured that Rudy Giuliani would be the most likely pushover. But, upon reflection and in light of recent events, I'm beginning to see the logic of hoping that Huckabee gets the GOP nod.

Actually, I don't see any of the Republican candidates as tough to beat.

Romney? Flip-flopper whose Mormonism would drive away lots of evangelicals. Thompson? Boring and out of his league. McCain? Craven geriatric whose straight-talk pretensions have long since worn thin; besides, the GOP right-wing base doesn't trust him. Tancredo? Paul? Hunter? Get serious.

I agree that Huckabee would be easy to beat. At this point, even though I don't think he would win, I believe that McCain would be the strongest Republican candidate, especially if he had a good running mate. By the way Rascal, I hope you caught Steve Chapman's column in the Sunday Trib. It was a terrific analysis of Mitt Romney's speech on his religion, echoing your comments.

I saw Chapman's piece. Very good.
