Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Saturday that he won’t be running for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. And he announced Sunday that he’s not yet ready to endorse anyone else, The Hill reports.

Mike Huckabee, president, 2012, endorse"Frankly, my feelings and emotions are still a little raw from the whole process because up until a few days ago I honestly thought I would be in it," he told "Fox News Sunday."

Huckabee did dole out some compliments about other candidates. "There are a lot of great candidates — most of them are very dear friends of mine," he said.

"Rick Santorum for example is a strong social conservative, but is also a strong fiscal and, I think, defense conservative, foreign policy conservative. Tim Pawlenty is another person; Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann . . . Sarah Palin, should she decide to get in, and I think people are awaiting her decision, like they were mine."
