Mike Huckabee's 8 p.m. show on Fox was the top-rated cable news show last Saturday; Tim Pawlenty will head to Naples, Florida tomorrow for a speaking engagement; and Florida Democrats are asking whom he'll endorse in the state's GOP Senate primary; he'll also speak in Alabama in Feburary; some more details are out on Sarah Palin's book--she not only dishes on conflict with McCain aides, she lists some favorite books she's read (which include "Animal Farm" and Steinbeck's "The Pearl") and has some critical things to say about Katie Couric; and clips of her interview with Oprah are out--see them here.
