Mike Huckabee wins Iowa caucus…and the analysis begins.
But even before the analysis, why Huckabee?
Normal presidential factors don’t favor Huckabee. For example:
Sex appeal? My girlfriend says his teeth are crooked and no president can have crooked teeth.
Popularity? No one heard of him up until a couple of months ago. He was so unpopular that his Merry Christmas TV ad was called a cheap ploy.
Dynamic wife? Who’s Janet?
Deep pockets for campaigning? Romney out spend him by tens of millions of dollars.
Keeping his faith quiet? You kidding?! Although most presidential candidates only give lip service to their own faith, Huckabee told us how important his belief is in Jesus…we know what happened to that “guy” some 2,000 years ago, so how wise is it to associate with someone still so persecuted?!
I’ll tell you how wise. It’s the best any man can do…share that he knows Christ and not hide.

Why Huckabee in Iowa? Well, just like a man with not-so-great communication skills won two terms in spite of the strongest hate ever seen for a U.S. president, Huckabee comes out a winner…despite his funny name, lack of money, and transparent profession of faith.
I’m calling it divine intervention.
