Good Morning, Mr. Frontrunner

Pundits are sitting around scratching their heads, wondering why no GOP candidates have formally announced for the GOP nomination in 2012. I think I know the answer.

Everyone is waiting to see what Mike Huckababee is going to do. Its clear to everyone, based on the early polling, that Huckabee has "formidable strength" as the only GOP candidate who can unite the party and defeat Obama.

As the front-runner, Huckabee is setting the tone for the 2012 GOP nomination. I think none of the other candidates want to announce or confirm their attendance at early debates until Huckabee does.

Frankly, any early presidential debate that doesn't include Huckabee is going to be considered illigitimate.

Is Mitt Romney going to risk sharing the stage with Newt Gingrich, who is only selling books, Sarah Palin, whose only go-to tactic in a debate is to wink, Ron Paul, the Godfather's Pizza CEO, and the guy that yells "the rent's too damn high"?

No, he's not. In 2012, a debate isn't a debate until Huckabee says its a debate.

Good morning, Mr. Frontrunner.
