Huckabee Heads To Iowa This Month

Mr. Huckabeeâ€™s new book could offer him a fresh platform to weigh in on the emerging debate over the Republican Partyâ€™s future. His Web site describes it as: â€œHuckabeeâ€™s amazing story, in his own words s â€” from making commercials with Chuck Norris to meeting a Michigan woman who insisted on donating her wedding ring.
But this is more than just a campaign memoir.
