Mike Huckabee Joins Fox News - NO VP for Huck?

Bill Smith, Editor, ARRA News: Former Governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is bringing his political expertise to Fox News Channel as a a political commentator. Huckabee, Arkansas' governor for 10 1/2 years, pulled off a stunning victory in the Iowa caucus and followed with primary victories in seven other states despite running his campaign on a shoestring.The Hope native ended his campaign March 4 after McCain attained the requisite number of delegates to clinch the party's nomination.

Bill Shine, the senior vice president of programming for FNC, calls Huckabee "a great addition" to the cable network's election coverage. Huckabee will regularly contribute to FNC's America's Election HQ coverage. In a statement , Huckabee said:
”I have signed on to be a part of the Fox News Channel family. I hope to bring the unique perspective from “inside the dragon’s belly” as well as to try and speak for the millions of hard-working middle class Americans who really do feel that their voices are not being heard. I saw that on the campaign trail and continue to see as I speak to groups of all kinds around the country as well as campaign for other candidates.

I’m looking forward to what I hope will be a very satisfying relationship not only for the Fox News Channel and me, but even more for the people of America.”
Previously this year, Huckabee launched "Huck PAC." So, Huckabee will both helps provide election coverage and will work to help elect conservatives to office. Although not detailed in by Huckabee's or Fox New's press releases, one wonders if Huckabee would have accepted this position if he was still a contender for Vice President. It appears there is No VP for Huck's near future with the convention being only a few months away. But don't count Huckabee out either in the short term or for future elections as a U.S. senator, U.S. representative or a future presidential contender. Hucks' Army remains ready in the wings!

Why is it that folks see what they want to see in a story? (not you..)

Has anyone ever head of 'clauses' that can be put in a contract? There is no way Huck signed that contract without a clause that gets him released in the event that he is selected as VP. He's ot stupid.

In the meantime.. the naieve drop their guard, he gets free airtime to make his case to a a faction of the GOP that was reluctant to embrace him, and his name recognition goes through the roof.

with bhis natural ability to use the media to connect, Huck can use the summer months to make inroads that waould make him priceless as a VP candidate.

and if he doesn't get chosen.. he still has an open door into the homes of potential future voters.

The man is a political genius.. You don't think he knew that Fox has been the network most biased AGAINST his candidacy? He could have gone with MSNBC and be subject to the continued accusation that he is a closet liberal.

Instead he has gone into the lions den to reshapre the debate from the inside out. Just what his grassroots base is doing at the local level with the candidates endorsed and supported by his PAC

The establishment underestimates Huckabee at their peril.

Good job Gov.

I agree with Maidensong. Mike Huckabee is a highly intelligent man and I am sure that there is a clause in his contract in case he is chosen as VP.

This is also great air-time for Mike to speak out for those of us who feel our voice isn't being heard. He has done that throughout his campaign and continues on with that fight.

Great job Mike!! Congrats!
