GIVING T-PAW AND MITCH A SHOT AT 1ST IN IA:

Huckabee's Aides Say He Won't Run (NEIL KING JR. and JONATHAN WEISMAN, 5/13/11, WSJ)

Mike Huckabee, who holds a leading position in most Republican presidential polls, will say on Saturday whether he will become a candidate, with top aides predicting that he won't run.

Mr. Huckabee's decision, however it falls, is likely to reorder the emerging presidential field. With little effort and no campaign, the former Arkansas governor led in surveys of Republican voters in Iowa and ranked first or second in many national polls, thanks to support among social conservatives and high name recognition as a 2008 candidate and Fox News host.
