Does Huck Think we <em>"Deserve"</em> Obama?

Bob Novak's column today makes the argument that Huckabee may not be fully supporting John McCain:

... credible activists are spreading the word that Huckabee secretly allies himself with the bitter-end opposition. That hardly seems possible considering his public backing, but critics of Huckabee's 10 years as governor of Arkansas say he is all too capable of playing a double game.

... One experienced, credible activist in Christian politics who would not let his name be used told me that Huckabee, in personal conversation with him, had embraced the concept that an Obama presidency might be what the American people deserve. That fits what has largely been a fringe position among evangelicals: that the pain of an Obama presidency is in keeping with the Bible's prophecy.

Granted, Novak is no fan of Huckabee (my observation).  Still, his sources are usually very reliable.  As such, I have no doubt that, at least, some of Huck's supporters adhere to this idea ...
