(Newser) – Mike Huckabee, who ruled himself out of running for president last month after intense prayer, says he might still be available for second place on the GOP ticket. "Everything is still open. I haven't closed doors. I found long ago that that's not the smart thing to do," he told reporters in Little Rock after a speech at the Clinton Presidential Library, Politico reports. Donald Trump has also decided not to close the door on a 2012 run.

Huckabee and Trump haven't closed door yet? Then please don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you. You both would be a running joke.
