It must be hard to kick a jones for the political spotlight once you’ve had a taste.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who took himself out of the 2012 Republican presidential race last month after intense reflection and prayer, pushed the door back open a little bit Wednesday, saying he might be interested in the No. 2 spot on the ticket if it were offered.
Businessman/reality TV star/hair model Donald Trump also misses the lights. Meeting fellow presidential flirt Sarah Palin for a dinner of pepperoni pizza Tuesday night, Trump said he might reconsider his decision to forgo a run at the GOP nomination.
“Everything is still open. I haven’t closed doors. I found out a long time ago that that’s not the smart thing to do,” Huckabee told reporters after delivering a lecture at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark.
