Alan Cross, a Baptist minister, has an interesting post which looks at the possible influence of internal Southern Baptist politics on support for Huckabee: Are Fundamentalist Southern Baptist Leaders Trying to Scuttle the Candidacy of Mike Huckabee Because of Old Battles During the Conservative Resurgence?

Ultimately, I think that the lack of (to date) serious evangelical-based support for Huckabee (in terms of leadership) has been because of his prior status as a second-to-third tier candidate, and therefore an electability calculus. Still, the notion that Huckabee’s tenure as President of the Arkansas Southern Baptist Convention might have bearing on internal GOP support is interesting.

  1. It is interesting to see how the politics of different subgroups plays into the overall issue of national politics. It just goes to show, that “Politics is the Master Science”, I guess. :)
