No surprise is the fact that Clinton and Obama are listed.

What is extremely interesting is the fact that Huckabee is listed.

"Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR): Governor Huckabee enjoyed a meteoric rise in the polls in December 2007, which prompted a more thorough review of his ethics record. According to The Associated Press: “[Huckabee’s] career has also been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction of state computer files on his way out of the governor’s office.” And what was Governor Huckabee’s response to these ethics allegations? Rather than cooperating with investigators, Huckabee sued the state ethics commission twice and attempted to shut the ethics process down."

In my opinion, this is extremely damning considering the fact that Huckabee's entire campaign is based on his "Souther Pastor, Good Guy" image.

Mayor Giuliani was on the list as well:

"Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY): Giuliani came under fire in late 2007 after it was discovered the former New York mayor’s office “billed obscure city agencies for tens of thousands of dollars in security expenses amassed during the time when he was beginning an extramarital relationship with future wife Judith Nathan in the Hamptons…” ABC News also reported that Giuliani provided Nathan with a police vehicle and a city driver at taxpayer expense. All of this news came on the heels of the federal indictment on corruption charges of Giuliani’s former Police Chief and business partner Bernard Kerik, who pleaded guilty in 2006 to accepting a $165,000 bribe in the form of renovations to his Bronx apartment from a construction company attempting to land city contracts."

Higher office tends to magnify problems, not minimize them. These two are clearly not fit for public office. Notice that Mitt Romney has never been accused of ethics problems.

The list is actually not ranked, but listed in alphabetical order. It still says something when 4 of the 8 serious contenders for the presidency are on the list.

I don't think we'll ever see Mitt on that list.
