From US News:
Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and defeated contender for the GOP presidential nomination, is currently at the top of John McCain‘s short list for a running mate. At least that’s the word from a top McCain fundraiser and longtime Republican moneyman who has spoken to McCain’s inner circle. The fundraiser is less than thrilled with the idea of Huckabee as the vice presidential nominee, and many economic conservatives—turned off by the populist tone of Huckabee’s campaign and his tax record as governor—are likely to share that marked lack of enthusiasm.
My first thought was that Huckabee as McCain’s VP would be good for Obama, but on second thought, I’m not so sure. He’d be good at drawing in the religiously insane people who don’t trust McCain because he’s not churchy enough for them.
