Huckabee Says God Said No To The Presidency In 2012

05.16.11 | Sarah Harnisch

Mike Huckabee announced Saturday night he won't be running for President in 2012. Historically speaking, the Republican field hasn't been this wide open since World War 2. Mark McKinnon, a strategist for former President George W. Bush, says "Huckabee's decision totally reshapes the race." The 55-year-old Baptist minister announced Saturday "all the factors say go, but my heart says no." He described it as a spiritual decision. So who does that leave?  Donald Trump, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty,  Mitch Daniels and Rick Santorum. All eyes now turn to Sarah Palin-- the momma grizzly in the room. Will she choose to run? Huckabee even said Saturday night: "I think people are waiting for her decision like they were for mine."
