He’s going to stay on the sidelines and collect that paycheck from Faux News (AP):

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Saturday he won’t seek the Republican presidential nomination, choosing to stick with a lucrative career as a television and radio personality over a race that would be both costly and caustic.

“All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, the winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, said on his Fox News Channel show.

…Huckabee painted the decision as a spiritual one. “Only when I was alone, in quiet and reflective moments, did I have not only clarity but an inexplicable inner peace,” he said.

“Being president is a job that takes one to the limit of his or her human capacity. For me, to do it apart from the inner confidence that I was undertaking it without God’s full blessing is simply unthinkable.”
