Huckabee did a kind of impressive little sidestep tap dance around the question while talking about when he had to have to sign off on executions as Governor of Arkansas. It was actually kind of impressive.
I have to tell you, I don't see why it's taken this long for people to take Huckabee seriously as a candidate. Why isn't he the front runner? He's super Christian, pleasant and well-spoken. He seems way more dangerous to Hillary than the rest. (By the way, where is Chuck Norris anyway? Wasn't he supposed to be sitting at Huckabee's feet?)
Did Tancredo just somehow say that Jesus would pull the electric chair lever? And then bow his head reverently afterwards?

You like to visit Tom Tancredo's campaign website every day. Who doesn't? Well, you probably noticed that you can't get to it as of right now. That's because he's "dropped" his new campaign ad, and you know how that is — it's like the 1987 release of Michael Jackson's "Bad" all over again. So, as a public service, we're bringing it to you right here. Trust us — it's the bomb.

Slate's Trail Head election blog recently posted a clever little quiz, challenging your ability to pick the candidates' children out of a line up. Included, of course, are Caroline Giuliani, Chelsea Clinton and the 32 Romney boys. How clever is the quiz? Here's how clever: there are 14 candidate children listed and 15 pictures. (The 15th picture is of a candidate's wife. Can you guess which one? Here's a hint — big boobs, vacant stare, rhymes with Theri Jompson.)
We don't know how you guys feel, but this was a little too hard for us. It's hard enough keeping track of all the candidates — especially from tiers three through seven — without devoting valuable brain energy to their offspring. So, here's our version of the quiz.
How well do you know the Men Who Will Not Be President? Match each long shot candidate's name to their face. Be careful, though; we threw in a few curveballs.
a. Joe Biden
b. Sam Brownback
c. Chris Dodd
d. Mike Gravel
e. Mike Huckabee
f. Duncan Hunter
g. Alan Keyes
h. Ron Paul
i. Bill Richardson
j. Tom Tancredo
