Somehow Everything's Gonna Work Out Fine...

Thanks, HuffPo--the suspense had been keeping me up at night:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says he's leaning slightly against running for president in 2012 but says it's far too early to say what he will do.

Huckabee says how the 2010 congressional elections turn out will affect his decision. He also will be looking at whether the Republican Party is willing to unite behind him as a candidate.

Another consideration, Huckabee says, is the status of his weekly TV show on Fox News.

Given those factors, Huckabee says mounting another presidential bid is "less likely rather than more likely" at the moment.

Huckabee finished second in the 2008 race for the GOP nomination. He remains a favorite of evangelical conservatives.

Huckabee appeared on "Fox News Sunday.

(Editor's note: "Fox News Sunday" rather than "Meet the Press" or "Face the Nation." McDonald's versus actual food; Astro-Turf versus grass; plastic surgery versus Mother Nature; Rupert Murdoch versus fact-based journalism; Gomer Pyle versus Mike Huckabee---oops, that last one's pretty much the same.)

BeltwayBlips: vote it up!

Oh, I think he's definitely out, now.. don't think he wants to see those "Mike Huckabee releases cop killers from prison" ads.
