Mike Huckabee after McCain’s projected wins in Vermont, Rhode Island, Texas and Ohio is leaving the race.  A sincere congratulations goes out to Senator McCain who has won the number of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination.

This is a huge story since McCain’s campaign was nearly bankrupt this summer – an incredible turnaround.  Karl Rove on Fox News calls his campaign the “Lazarus Campaign”.  Now the debate will be who should be his running mate.  Pundits are saying it shouldn’t be Huckabee, but the pundits also said the nominee shouldn’t be John McCain either.

I think Mike Huckabee would be a good choice to be on the ticket, and I think he can make a good argument as to why he should be.  Ultimately it is up to John McCain.

  1. Huckabee was five times more exciting and eloquent delivering his concession speech than McCain was delivering his victory speech. I prefer McCain in terms in terms of policy, but man, the guy is D.U.L.L.

  4. I was very disappointed that Mike lost. He is the right guy for the job and I feel very ambivalent towards McCain. I did think Mike’s concession speech was very well written and delivered. I would like to see him as a VP – you never know.

  7. By the end of Huckabee’s run I started to like the guy – on a personal level. As far as his stands on issues – that’s another story.

    On a side note – one of my heroes is running for the Presidency again – the one and only – Ralph Nader. He won’t win mind you – but man I sure wish he did.

  10. Society – Ralph Nader!?!?! Man, when he announced he was running again I thought I was entering the twilight zone.

    Anna & Nick I agree with your assessment of Huckabee’s speech.

    It will be interesting if Huckabee gets the VP nod… I’m not holding my breath on that. McCain is going to be under tremendous pressure to pick somebody different. Karl Rove said that having Huckabee as a running mate would “double his trouble” when it comes to the “Reagan” conservatives.
