Mike Huckabee left his FOX News show and seems ready to explore a presidential run for 2016. Is he planning to run? And what does his candidacy mean for serious conservative candidates like Ted Cruz? Glenn took a look at what he believes is really going on and how a Huckabee candidacy helps one person - Jeb Bush.
"So we have Jeb Bush, possibly Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee. This is going to be good," Glenn joked.
"Let me give you some insight on what really happened here. Let's just pretend that I was an adviser to the Republican party. And I cared about the Republican party, which I want to make it very clear, I do not. But let's just say that you're war gaming and you're giving advice to people and you're giving advice to Mike Huckabee and he comes into your office and says, 'Hey, should I run?'"
"If I care about the Republican party as a progressive entity...I'd say 'Oh my gosh, yes.' Not because I think Mike Huckabee has a chance of winning, because he doesn't have a chance of winning, but because Mike Huckabee will bifurcate the vote for Ted Cruz."
After being brutally mocked for using the phrase "bifurcate the vote" rather than "split the vote", Glenn explained what he saw as the biggest obstacles for Ted Cruz, a potential challenger to Jeb Bush. Namely, fellow libertarian-leaning Senator Rand Paul, followed by conservative Christian candidates.
"Ted Cruz is going to get his support from two places. One, constitutionalists and constitutionalists that lean Libertarian," Glenn explained. "Constitutionalists, Libertarians, and faith-based people."
"Split the vote between Huckabee, now Santorum, maybe Romney, to some degree, and Ted Cruz," he explained.
Glenn predicts Rand Paul will have his credibility shredded by the media for being "too radical" while at the same time praising him for not being part of the Christian right. However, they will only do this after Ted Cruz has fallen away as a contender.
"So what they'll do is they'll take Ted Cruz out by chopping up the vote and breaking up the block of the religious vote...take him out by bifurcating the religious vote," Glenn explained.
"Then if there's anything else, divide the Libertarian constitutionalists, let Ted Cruz go away, leave Rand Paul in and then just clean the floor with Rand Paul."
And who wins if Glenn is right?
