Mike Huckabee Won’t Endorse Hoffman. I Know Why.

I wish I did not know. This is so disappointing.

2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
3 What does man gain by all the toil
at which he toils under the sun?
4 A generation goes, and a generation comes,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
and hastens to the place where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south
and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns.
7 All streams run to the sea,
but the sea is not full;
to the place where the streams flow,
there they flow again.
8 All things are full of weariness;
a man cannot utter it;
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:2-9 (ESV)

I’ve known this for a couple of weeks and hoped it wasn’t true. But based on more conversations over the last few days and today, I have to report that denials to the contrary I know why Mike Huckabee will not endorse Doug Hoffman despite agreeing with pretty much everything Doug Hoffman says.The Club for Growth and Fred Thompson endorsed Doug Hoffman.Huckabee and the Club do not get along and Huckabee is still bitter about Thompson hanging on after Iowa in 2008.Now that Palin has endorsed and more are coming, perhaps Huckabee will have a change of heart.For now, though, he can’t bring himself to be on the same side as the Club For Growth and Thompson.Vanity, vanity, all is vanity.
