Dobson to Endorse Huckabee?

Rumors swirled all day about a potential endorsement of Mike Huckabee by James Dobson. Such an endorsement would be huge for the Huckabee campaign. It all started with this piece on the American Spectator website. (I've had trouble connecting to the site this evening so keep checking back if you have problems too). The article was later updated when Dobson's people said no endorsement was imminent. Then late today the Huckabee camp issued this statement.

The interesting thing about the denials from both sides is that neither said Dobson wasn't going to endorse Huckabee. Only that an endorsement isn't imminent. Dobson may still endorse Huckabee eventually. Huckabee is one of the few (if not the only) candidate that Dobson hasn't declared unacceptable. If Wildmon and Dobson both support Huckabee, many other evangelical leaders would likely follow suit. It might be enough to get Huckabee in the top tier of the republican candidates and it could lead to a nomination or at least a V.P. slot.
