Huckabee still hounds McCain

Despite coming under pressure to quit the race, Mike Huckabee has scored a considerable success in winning two of the three state primaries this weekend. Huckabee has every right to remain in the race. The whole idea of primaries and caucuses is for ordinary folk to have a say in who gets to be the party nominee. It just goes to show that they aren't going to be a pushover by the manipulators.

John McCain may be a very brave man, he may very well look after the United States to the best of his abilities, but he keeps saying and doing things that put people off. Whatever the pundits say, he only has a third of the Republican Party base on side. He may look good in delegate count but there is a large slice of the American population that still thinks twice!

Mike Huckabee is after the so-called conservative vote and is still a force in this arena. In that, he strikes me as being a tad more genuine than Romney. Ron Paul is on a mission to rid the US of big government, unnecessary taxes, inflationary tendencies and the current penchant to meddle in people's freedom. Both need to stay in the race so that there is a proper debate at the convention.

The BBC is promoting McCain as the "all but assured" candidate. The but is the thing!
