During a press conference in Providence, Rhode Island, Huckabee said “I’m kind of hoping the New York Times will take me on and run a nasty front page story — may be the best thing that could happen to me.” This was his response to questions about a nasty McCain story which the New York Times ran a few days ago. Huckabee said he thinks it was a good thing for McCain because it got people to focus their attention on him, and Huckabee would be pleased if the NYT did the same thing to him-run a nasty front page story-that is.

“It’s something that could be like that,” Huckabee said, “Obviously, that one didn’t seem to make a big difference. In fact, if anything it’s helped John McCain and I’m kind of hoping the New York Times will take me on and run a nasty front page story — may be the best thing that could happen to me, certainly was to him.”

Huckabee has suggested recently that such a moment could be his ticket to the nomination.

“One word can end a guy’s political career, one word, and it’s over,” Huckabee elaborated. “So when people say I can’t be the nominee, until we get to the convention in Minneapolis this fall in September, we don’t know absolutely, positively who that nominee is.”

It is likely that if every liberal paper in the worlds attacked Mike Huckabee he would still stand no chance. At this point, only an outright miracle could give Mike Huckabee the nomination.
