Last week Huckabee told the New York Times and the Washington Post that he's considering a second run for president in 2016, after an abysmal loss in 2008. He made clear he wouldn't be doing it out of pride.

But he may be doing it to promote a new news website he has started, according to ABC News:

The site will cover a range of topics from news and politics to sports and pop culture, according to the former governor’s son, David Huckabee.

A Craigslist ad was also recently spotted calling on reporters to apply for openings at "The Huckabee Post," which supposedly has offices in both New York City and Washington, D.C.

After his loss in 2008, Huckabee went on to host a weekly show on Fox News.

America's favorite game show host Donald Trump said for months in 2011 that he was considering a run for president. The mock run culminated in a press conference where he declared he would instead continue hosting NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice."
