Huckabee, Romney or Guiliani?

Three articles today by three distinguished journalists point out the positives and negatives of each of these candidates (or potential candidates). E.J. Dionne asks if Mike Huckabee tries to please everyone (conversatives on social issues; moderates on other issues like the environment and healthcare) will he not please anyone? Hugh Hewitt vilifies those who attack Mitt Romney's faith by calling it bigotry. And Stuart Rothenberg questions whether Rudy Guiliani will be a favorite or a flop.

The battle lines are beginning to take shape. Evangelical Christians will like Huckabee's positions on abortion and same-sex marriage but will they also accept his positions on the environment and healthcare? Mitt Romney's faith will certainly be a key issue in his bid for the White House. Rudy looks electable but disagrees with the republican party on core issues like abortion, gun control and gay rights. And we certainly can't forget about John McCain. It all makes for an interesting 15-18 months.
