Mike Huckabee is to this presidential race as Howard Dean was to 2004:

  • Both were small-start Governors with modest records.

  • Both started out as minor candidates.

  • Both catapulted to the front by capturing a bloc of voters who were leaderless: the Democratic antiwar left and the Republican Christian right.

  • Both turned out to have a lot of baggage in what they did and said as Governors.

  • And neither one looks like a President.

In the end, Dean imploded. Look for Huck to follow suit soon.
