Poll: Would You Watch Mike Huckabee on TV?

Based on his almost impossible chances of winning the nomination, it seems like Mike Huckabee is running for something other than president. Maybe the VP spot, maybe to push John McCain a bit more toward the right, maybe because he's having so much fun playing his bass guitar and running around the country with Chuck Norris.

All this got me wondering — would Mike Huckabee drop out if he were offered a cable television show? Think about it. He would have a perfect platform to spread his message and wield influence. And he could continue to enjoy the spotlight. Other expoliticians do quite nicely on TV. I love watching Morning Joe with former Congressman Joe Scarborough. And Huck seems to ham it up whenever he's on The Colbert Report.

Would you watch easygoing, squirrel-eating Mike Huckabee on TV? What should he call the show?

Romney was the best candidate and like blondie01 said, Huckabee ruined his chances. Plus the man is weak on every issue that is important to me and he scares me with his anti-other-organized-Christian-groups speak. He's sure to not uphold our constitution (he's not smart enough). No offense to anyone who is pro-Huckabee though - if you're rooting for him - good for you, I'm glad your candidate still has a little steam - I just list my reasons above because it's my perception. No - I wouldn't watch him.

I like Huckabee and I really wish he would get the Republican nomination. ANYONE but McCain. He is a terrible candidate in my mind. The Republicans would be kinda dumb to run McCain, especially since Huckabee could get the conservative, evangelical vote. Ron Paul would be a great president, I think. Too bad he's last in the polls. I'd even prefer Romney over McCain. Heck, I'd probably vote for Joe Schmo down the street before McCain.

Uh, I'm scared of him because he mentioned in an interview that he would be willing to change the constitution so that it lived up to "God's standards," and you can bet that would mean his very fundamental interpretation of what God wants. Because he also once said that he couldn't confirm that evolution had ever happened because he wasn't physically there to witness it. Because of his track record of comments on homosexuality being "aberrant, unnatural, and sinful" is personally offensive to me.

I would watch him on tv from time-to-time. I wouldn't want him to be my next president, but I think he could be entertaining. And I don't see anything wrong with sharing your religious beliefs with others (some would call it imposing them on others) IF it's from a non-governmental platform, like television. If he had a religious show, I probably wouldn't watch it, but I see nothing wrong with a religious show. Now, imposing religious beliefs from office is a different story.

agreed, blondie01. I can't stand Huckabee, and he's delusional if he thinks he's still got a shot at the presidency. That makes me scared to think of what a tv show with him would be like!

I will totally watch Huckabee! It is important to understand the motivations of all candidates, without regard to whether you support their stance or not. Because, while remote, there's a chance he could be elected or appointed to an office in the next administration.

This man scares me. The fact that he's still campaigning makes me afraid for our future... There will eventually be more elections, not to mention the fact that the republican candidate will need a running mate... and if someone this nuts is voted into office later, I'm afraid I'll have to secede from the theocracy. On that note, I would definitely watch him on TV if for nothing more than to look in awe at what some people (Chuck Norris, probably Toby Keith, etc.. ugh.) believe would be a viable choice to lead this country. It's a good reminder of why not to necessarily fall for the likable, albeit fascist, type.

I would totally watch him. He is hilarious, and seems smart and nice. Now they would have to tell him, no preaching or bashing any group...I would never vote for him...What IS he trying to do? They won't give him the veep spot, that is for sure. And he can't win the nomination. So is he recruiting members for his church?...The Adventures of Mike Huckteevee. He is with Norris so much, he could change his name to Mike Chuckabee.

What's so scary about him? he wants to impose his religious beliefs on others, and that is NEVER okay. It's unAmerican, even.

What's so scary about Huckabee? I mean other than his name and squirrel-eating.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I never thought someone would freak me out more than the Bushies.

Hell no. The man is a lunatic. I suppose he's better on TV than he might be in the WH (heaven forfend).

I dunno. I mean, he's a nice guy. He has a sense of humor. But, I don't agree at all with him on major issues, and I wouldn't exactly be thrilled if he started promoting his ideas...
