Will Huckabee Run for President in 2012?

Recent polls have both Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee within striking distance of the president. As someone who has been more of an observer of the whole political game for the time being, I find it rather interesting that a lot of pundits are predicting that Mike won't even run.

Just the other day I was listening to one guy on the radio talk about how Mike has sincere doubts about running. While this may be true, I find it rather incredulous considering how Huckabee has a pretty decent chance at winning this time. His biggest competition would be the fiscal conservatives such as club for growth who maligned him the last time around and will probably go after him as a "tax and spend liberal" as they called him last time.

Of course it's not readily apparent whether or not Mike Huckabee will run for president, but there's certain physiological issues that play very strongly into what may be going through Mike Huckabee's mind. Think about it as if you where Mike Huckabee for a minute. If you've had aspirations of being the President of the United States, the leader of the free world, the big guy in charge at a different time, let's say 2008, why would you just let those aspirations fade away.

The truth is that dreams as being president are something that a person doesn't let go of easily. So, if you're Mike Huckabee and you're looking at the current president's low approval numbers and you think you may very well have a chance to beat him, do you just sit there and do nothing? Of course not. Is Mike Huckabee running for president? The chances are very good that he is.

You may have seen this already, but Huckabee's campaign manager from 2008 thinks he will run again. See the article here...
