Surprise! Mike Huckabee would like to be John McCain’s running mate. The lukewarmness of the big evangelical dogs toward Huck during the GOP primary contest probably doesn’t matter as much as the fact that he did stir the troops. Given the inability of the GOP to win congressional races in formerly safe districts in Huck’s part of the country, the troops need some stirring, bad. A two-maverick (or quasi-maverick) ticket? I’d say the Huckabee futures market is looking up.
