That’s Kim Strassel’s argument:
The GOP is still reeling from its financial scandals, which helped Democrats tag the party with a “culture of corruption” in last year’s congressional races. A Huckabee nomination would also neutralize one of the biggest weapons against nominee Hillary Clinton–her own ethically tortured past. If the subject came up at all, it would be a race to the Arkansas bottom. A matchup with Barack Obama could be worse, since the “politics of hope” senator has so far avoided scandal and could bludgeon Mr. Huckabee on his past.
And perhaps the most hard-hitting line: “GOP voters may not have examined Mr. Huckabee’s record, but the left has–and they love what they see.”
Read the whole thing, as they say.
