Since Mike Huckabee (former Governor of Arkansas) came in second in the Iowa Straw poll, questions have surfaced if he can survive a presidential run. I believe he can. He may not be able to raise enough money, but I do believe he has the fortitude to leg it out in the polls.
Huckabee is the only true social conservative, with a biblical worldview, and a record of strong governmental leadership. He is a former Baptist pastor. He was a student at Southwestern Seminary (my alma mater) and is a devoted husband of one woman.
I just can’t get behind any of the other candidates. They simply do not represent my view of what leadership should be. Rudy has been married 3 times and has only served as a mayor. New York is a big city, yes, but presidential experience, NO. Newt Ginrich is a womanizer and at times, highly unethical. Mitt Romney’s convictions on abortion and same-sex marriage are not in line with a biblical worldview. I could never support John McCain period. And Sen. Brownback (KS) doesn’t connect with anyone human. He is more robot than person. He is a social conservative, just not an inspiring one.
So I hope Huckabee can make it through. It is doubtful at this time that he will survive the primaries. The financial support is just not there. If he doesn’t, I may be going to the polls and choosing not to vote for a president.
NONE OF THE ABOVE or Mike Huckabee. Those are really my other options in 2008.
