Neither are qualified for any elected office, and for the same reason: their strong support for illegal immigration. However, the good news is that should they continue on they'll be extremely vulnerable on that issue and it might lead to a third-party run by someone like Lou Dobbs.
The only reason either of them have political careers is because the mainstream media refuses to do their job and ask them questions about their policies and past statements and actions. If the MSM had looked in to Huckabee's Mexican consulate deal or Obama acting as a useful idiot for those linked to the Mexican government I don't think that we'd see this same result.
The thing to do now is to a) work to shame the MSM into asking real questions, and b) go to campaign appearances and ask those tough questions yourself, and then upload the responses to video sharing sites.
* Mike Huckabee (search for his name here for much more)
* Barack Obama (also this)
* John Edwards
* John McCain
* Hillary Clinton
* Rudy Giuliani (also ask about his incipient national ID card)
* Bill Richardson
* also see the videos here.
Clinton, Giuliani, and Obama take certain steps to avoid being asked difficult questions, but even asking someone more accessible like Bill Richardson a series of tough questions would work wonders: it would send a message to the others as well as to the MSM.
