Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama made a big splash when they won the Iowa caucuses at the start of the campaign. Since then, their paths have diverged. Huckabee may or may not run again, but in the meantime, the former governor and Chuck Norris man crush will spend the next year peddling his unique brand of commentary to the viewers of Fox News.
The former Arkansas governor has signed a one-year deal as a political commentator for Fox News, where he will sound off on a variety of programs. A knowledgeable source says an announcement is expected soon.
Other cable channels had been pursuing Huckabee, who provided commentary on MSNBC during one of its primary-night broadcasts. Fox has given a platform to such former Republican politicos as Newt Gingrich and Karl Rove.
