Huckabee Opts Against 2012 White House Bid

Showing more sense than I'd given him credit for, Mike Huckabee has decided against running for president in 2012.

One former Arkansas governor becoming president is enough!

Mike Huckabee said Saturday there would be no sequel to his surprisingly strong 2008 White House bid, in which he won the Iowa Republican caucus and finished second in the primaries to Sen. John McCain.

"All the factors say go, but my heart says no," Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several national polls, said on his Fox News Channel show.

But, he had a lot of baggage from his stint as governor and more than a few less than brilliant observations. And he'd have that really sweet and lucrative gig he'd fallen into, which he'd have to give up.

"...I had not done much toward a race because my life was filled with work that I truly love here at Fox News, doing radio commentaries on my daily Huckabee Report on 600 radio stations, traveling the country for speaking engagements, and helping good conservative, pro-life candidates who were running for office," he said.

Good choice Mike! Live long and prosper as a radio and TV commentator.
