One of the least surprising announcements of the year: starting this weekend, Mike Huckabee will have his own T.V. show on Fox News.
It's been interesting to watch Huckabee and Mitt Romney -- two former governors and former Republican presidential candidates -- the last few months.
Romney has been the loyal partisan, serving as an active surrogate for John McCain. He even used millions of dollars of his own money to pay off his campaign debt, a move that was widely seen as a way to allow his donors get fully behind McCain, if the former Massachusetts governor was tapped as McCain's running mate.
Huckabee, on the other hand, has been saying whatever comes to his mind, regardless of whether it's favorable to the Republican cause. He defended Jeremiah Wright, pointed out that Barack Obama's "lipstick on a pig" remark wasn't directed at Sarah Palin and, just today, said that McCain made a "huge mistake" by suggesting the first debate be postponed.
With both Romney and Huckabee seen as likely 2012 presidential candidates if McCain doesn't win (or, who knows, even if he does), their contrasting styles are worth watching. Romney may win points for loyalty, but Huckabee could gain a reputation as an independent truth-teller.
