Huckabee, Palin Mull White House Run

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee considering running for president again in 2012.

"I'm not ruling it out. And that's not a yes, but it's definitely not a no," Huckabee said.

"The honest answer is: I'm keeping it open as an option; I'm looking at whether or not there's a pathway to victory," he added. "As I've told several people, I'm not jumping into a pool when there's no water in it."

Sunday's New York Times magazine suggests that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is also considering the 2012 race. Asked whether she's weighing a run, Palin said, "I am. I'm engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here."

She also told Barbara Walters that she thinks she could beat President Obama.
