The Sudden Impact of Mike Huckabee Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is an ordained Baptist minister who still delivers sermons full of Old Testament stories and New Testament fire. The Baptist preacher tells reporters he wants the Rolling Stones for his inaugural ball. He also wants to abolish Social Security , Medicare and the IRS . Huckabee has spent $400,000 in Iowa; Mitt Romney has spent $7 million. Despite his shoestring campaign against millionaires and household names, he's now leading among Republican presidential candidates—in Iowa and in national polls . Huckabee says it's divine intervention. Others suggest that Republicans aren't satisfied with their other options. Is it for real or is Huckabee just the latest front-runner in a party that hasn't made up its mind?
