Again, a nugget from The Politico. They placed Gov. Romney as first, Rudy as second, and…Mike Huckabee as third?
THIRD PLACE: Mike Huckabee
Analysis: Veep Alert! Veep Alert! Smooth. Not too strident. Not too tall. Won’t overshadow top of ticket. Totally playing for the vice presidential slot.
Knows how to set up a straw man and then knock him down: Asked about why he believes in Creationism, he said: “If they want a president who doesn’t believe in God, there’s probably plenty of choices.” There are? Name one.
Still, he managed to come across as conservative, but not scary. But we are forced to subtract points because he said: “Today’s the birthday of Ronald Reagan.” Totally wrong. Ronald Reagan was born on February 6, 1911. Huckabee actually meant it was the anniversary of Reagan’s death on June 5, 2004. But, hey, veeps don’t have to know everything.
