WON'T HAVE RUDY TO KICK AROUND ANY MORE:

Huckabee inches toward Giuliani, poll shows: Among GOP-leaning voters, the former Arkansas governor's campaign for president is catching fire beyond Iowa (Janet Hook, 12/04/07, Los Angeles Times)

Huckabee has pulled into second place, close behind Giuliani, in the national survey of Republican-leaning voters. The results signal that Huckabee's candidacy is catching fire beyond Iowa -- where several recent polls have shown him with a slight lead or in a virtual dead heat with Mitt Romney, who long had led in the state where the nomination process officially starts.

In the Times/Bloomberg poll, Huckabee was preferred by 17% of likely GOP voters -- up from 7% in a similar October survey.

Support for Giuliani, the former New York mayor who once enjoyed a commanding lead in national polls, slid 9 percentage points over the last two months -- to 23%.


The Mayor lasted right up to the moment folks started paying attention.

We now only need Huckabee to make a "surge-ending gaffe" to prove all OJs theories correct.

McCain or Thompson will prove inevitable winners, or Mitt and Rudy will be inevitable losers.

Huckabee is the Wild card. I'd love to watch him actually pull it off.
