So Huckabee is resisting the calls to bow out:

 Good for him.  I find this insistence of party elders (in both parties) on a coronation to be quite insulting.  People like to participate, to make a choice.  How many voters feel alienated because they didn’t even get a chance to vote for their best candidate?  And isn’t our campaign season too damn long already?  Do we need to have six months of the two nominees attacking each other rather than three?

 Besides, it’s really entertaining to watch the Republican base express its unhappiness.
