Afterthoughts on Huckabee Republican Presidential Forum

Mike Huckabee, a former 2008 Presidential candidate himself, designed a forum that would give all candidates equal time, substantiative questions, and an opportunity to showcase their campaign for the American voter. There were no gotcha questions, no pitting one candidate against another, nor any silliness where a candidate has to raise his/her hand. As HotAir stated, it was Hucktastic.

Only one candidate declined the opportunity to answer the questions by Attorneys General: Pam Bondi, Ken Cuccinelli and Scott Pruitt--candidate Jon Huntsman. Mike Huckabee noted that Huntsman blew an opportunity that will definitely affect his campaign via GOP12

  1. Kudos to Huckabee for delivering a great example of how debates/forums should be implemented going forward.

    I thought it was a very informative, well planned forum.

    My only disappointment with the forum is that I wished Gov Huckabee had asked a question of each candidate himself. I would have liked to hear the question that was foremost in his mind on each candidate.

    Well, that and I wish Gov Huckabee had run himself for the nomination.
