A raft of primary election results came from around the country last night, and everybody is watching for hints, clues, and omens of what’s to come.

Mike Huckabee is watching. The former Baptist preacher, Arkansas governor, and GOP presidential candidate made his run for the White House in ’08. He did it on a shoestring and a quick wit. And he may do it again in 2012.

Running in the age of Obama. In a Republican field bristling with names like Romney, Gingrich, Haley Barbour, Sarah Palin.

Today, a conversation about this American moment with Mike Huckabee. (Read some of the transcript of his remarks.)

Guest:

Jonathan Martin, senior political writer for Politico.com.

Mike Huckabee is the former governor of Arkansas and a former Republican presidential candidate. He’s host of the daily talkshow “The Huckabee Show” and the weekend show “Huckabee” on FOX, and “The Huckabee Report” on talk radio.  He heads the political action committee HuckPac.
