LOOKS LIKE GOVERNOR HUCKABEES LIKE GOVERNOR HUCKABEE GETS HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES....

For McCain, Momentum That May Be Hard to Stop (Dan Balz, 1/30/08, Washington Post)

Strategists noted that Romney's tenacity and ability to write a check from his personal fortune to keep his campaign going make him a formidable opponent, but the landscape appears stacked against him -- beginning with the aftershocks from Tuesday's results.

Romney will probably receive support from parts of the party's conservative base, which has never warmed to McCain and now has perhaps one final chance to stop him. But McCain will benefit from other developments in Florida.

Tuesday's primary eliminated from serious contention former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who stunned his rivals by winning the Iowa caucuses 26 days ago, and former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, long the national front-runner until he dramatically faded over the past two months.

Giuliani is set to quit the race and endorse McCain before Wednesday's debate at the Ronald Reagan presidential library in California. Huckabee said he will remain in, and by doing so will help McCain by frustrating Romney's efforts to attract more of the conservative votes he needs to overtake the front-runner.

Though I'll likely support McCain in Nov., the talk radio host in me couldn't help write a parody song sure to warm the hearts of "wahoos" everywhere.

Be warned however, that my radio voice is much much better than my singing voice.

Enjoy

Agreed on HHS. Good fit, given (a) executive experience, (b) policy interests and (c) political base.

Heck, the girls and boys over at the National Review's Corner are in total despair. It is pretty funny. It is like they've turned into a cross between Andrew Sullivan and Rod Dreher.
