Huckabee said he still backs McCain’s candidacy, but said the Arizona senator should not have put his campaign on hold to deal with the financial crisis on Wall Street. He said a president must be prepared to "deal with the unexpected."


"You can’t just say, 'World stop for a moment. I’m going to cancel everything,'" Huckabee said.
