Huck’s Gamble:

by Jonathan H. Adler

Huckabee’s decision to appear on MTP just a few days before the Iowa Caucuses was initially viewed as a high-stakes gable.  If so, it paid off.  Tim Russert was uncharacteristically non-confrontational asking few pointed or difficult questions.  While he pressed on foreign policy, Huck’s responses were smooth, and he never got flustered.  Huck came across as a confident and likable candidate.  As a Fred guy, I wish it weren’t so, but I think this interview may have helped Huck.  [I missed my guy on FNS, but my father said he did well.]
