Mike Huckabee Is Now Maybe Kinda Sorta Thinking About Running

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 24: Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee talks about his new book, "A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (and a Trillion that We Don't!)," at the National Press Club February 24, 2011 in Washington, DC. The winner of the Iowa GOP caucus in 2008, Huckabee is said to be considering another run for the U.S. presidency in 2012.
