Huckabee in the lead

A new Rasmussen poll of likely Republican candidates shows Mike in the lead among several candidates. It doesn't mean a lot at this point, but it is interesting. Actually, it bears out the truism that the likely winner in a political race will be the person with the most "likeable" bearing and personality--the "warmest". I'm certain that this has been a factor in many of the elections in the "media age"--since 1960. Still pictures and words favor the appearance of maturity and wisdom. Voice and video favor an image of sympathy, personal warmth, sincerity and a degree of charisma.

We'll see....
