Jonathan Adler has an interesting comment on the issue of Huckabee as Vice President.
Not that I’m representative of any big constituency or anything (libertarian-leaning law profs in swing states?), but if McCain were to select Huckabee as his running mate he would lose my vote for sure. I’m luke-warm on McCain to begin with, but I care enough about judges, trade, judges, spending, and judges that I’m still likely to pull the lever for him come November. But not if he were to tap the Huckster.
I concur with Adler’s distaste for Huckabee, especially since he’s out there spreading lies and attacking Gov. Romney to this day.
