VIDEO - Mike Huckabee: "I Endorse Reagan!"

Over the past few months I have gone back in the recent time machine to bring back some of the great moments of the Mike Huckabee for President Campaign. Just days before the Super Tuesday Tsunami of contests the remaining GOP contenders gathered at the Ronald Reagan Library. It was a rather boring two hours as it featured Romney and McCain literally hitting each other over the head with clubs (like a fight between cavemen on The Flintstones). It was as if Romney vs McCain was the main event and sa at the head table while Huckabee and Ron Paul were handed the leftover scraps of meat. This would end up being the last time Governor Huckabee got to speak to America during a debate during the cycle. As usual Huckabee made the most of his chance. It was very odd that during a debate dominated by McCain and Romney that Huck was given the last word. However that's the way it worked out.

The final question asked to the candidates is whether Ronald Reagan would endorse them and why? McCain, Romney, and even Paul literally wet themselves trying to say why Reagan would endorse them. Meanwhile Huckabee took the chance to endorse Ronald Reagan instead. As I watched this unfold on TV I knew I was watching something and hearing something really special. It is very unclear whether this answer led to him winning most of the South on Super tuesday but it was one heck of a way to leave the debate circuit.
