As the Mike Huckabee campaign prepared to air a television advertisement attacking Mitt Romney in the last days before the Iowa caucuses, one crucial player argued strenuously against the spot. Her name was Janet Huckabee. Mike Huckabee would eventually announce at a news conference that he was overruling most of his advisors and would not air the ad. He described this as an act of conscience, but he was also bowing to the wishes of his wife of 33 years.

Both groups deny the money was payback for the free publicity she generated for their industry.

This isn't your usual mobile home. The 2,131-square-foot, $110,000 "triplewide" announced Tuesday as the new temporary home of Arkansas' first family could be called "the governor's mansion" of all mobile homes.

He needed to cut $2 billion from the budget he was putting together, and any of his best options for doing it could get him into trouble. If he raised taxes, he'd anger his fellow Republicans. Break a promise to increase education funding and he'd alienate the top Democratic interest group, the California Teachers Assn.
