I had a chance to run into former Arkansas Mike Huckabee at Rick Santorum’s tent as finished playing with The Crickets at the Santorum Straw Poll site.  I asked him about what it was like to attend not being a candidate himself and his thought on whether or not Texas Governor Rick Perry’s announcement would overshadow the Ames Straw Poll.

I personally think that Governor Perry could have maximized media attention by not announcing today. He would have been better off announcing at the fundraiser in Waterloo, IA instead. He’s a video of the reaction from those watching his speech in the Strong America Now tent at the Ames Straw Poll.

  1. Shane… you got to meet governor Huckabee, and you 1) didn’t say hello from me and 2) didn’t plead with him to jump back into the race… ?

    How can you do that to me? I thought we were friends 🙁 😉 haha seriously, I’m mostly just sad that he never really seems to miss the race or anything. He’s got it all in terms of intelligence, character and charisma, but the stupid GOP establishment blocked him. 

    Maybe if the race comes down to Romney vs Perry, he’ll reconsider? Yeah I’m dreaming, but the world is too depressing without dreams.
