Huck: After Tonight "Things Will Get Even Crazier"

Huckabee emailed supporters yesterday about tonight's episode of "The Decision".

Looks like he's planning on taking his talents to Ames, Iowa.

I will look forward to speaking with you soon and once I fulfill my sworn obligation to Fox, I will be free to discuss things that I can't now due to promises to them and to some possible legal considerations of the announcement.

Many friends have said, "how can we help you in the decision?" My answer has consistently been, "Pray that I have clarity." I have it and will share it Saturday night during the show. Please be patient if I don't respond immediately to an email because I expect that once I pull the trigger Saturday night, things will get even crazier, as if that's possible.

I'm not sure how saying, "I'm not running, tune in next week for another show. Just like we've been doing for about 3 years now" would make things "even crazier". Also, what would the, "possible legal considerations" of the status quo be?

You know who this benefits? I wish I did.

On the other hand.

"He's not going to run, " Ed Rollins, Huckabee's 2008 national campaign chairman tells FOX. " Rollins, who with other members of the Huckabee inner circle, was in charge of setting up a potential campaign operation, emotes a sense of frustration.

"About a week ago he broke off communications which tells me he's not going to run," Rollins says gruffly. "It was different this time around. I always told him it was his decision, and no one else's. I have always told him, If you don't have the fire in the belly, don't get into the race ."

Another member of Huckabee's inner circle, who has known the former Arkansas governor since the 90's confirms Rollins description, but says Huckabee has not spoken to him directly.

"He would have made a great president, but I am not despondent about it," he says. "I've known him for years. He knows what he is doing."

The one thing I am pretty sure of is, either way this will be the highest rated episode of Huckabee ever.

BTW- When does FNC tell Palin to decide one way or the other? Are they giving her me leeway because she's the more popular and valuable to them than Huckabee, Gingrich and Santorum. Or...do they already know what she's (not) going to do?
