Mike Huckabee Won't Run for President ... If Jeb Bush Runs
"Having gone through the process before and knowing just what it entails, it's not a decision I'll make lightly," Huckabee tells The National Journal. "If I did run, I do think I would have very significant strength going into it. The real question for me is, do I get through the nomination process?"
Other familiar names are also expected to mount a bid in 2012 as well, including Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Though, only one person would keep Huckabee out of the race altogether, and that's Jeb.
"I love Jeb, I think he's brilliant," Huckabee says. "He could certainly raise the money, and I think he'd clear the deck."
Jeb Bush however has made a veritable career out of claiming he's not running for President. So either Jeb Bush is a giant liar, or Mike Huckabee is totally running for President. Maybe he can get Jeb's politically adopted son Marco Rubio to be his Veep candidate though.
