Talk about the political kiss(off) of death! Anyway, not likely that Huckabee will accept to serve under Giuliani, as Huckabee and his constituency won't be bought off that easily. VP for Romney I can see, or Thompson, though I am not willing to give up on Huckabee just yet.

Absolutely not! No way. We've too many weak Republicans, weak men in Washington already. Enough. The times are too serious for some happy-faced, Bible belter.

Good grief Dan. What is this? The politics of emotion and first impression. We have enough of that with the uninformed voters without you elevating it.



We certainly do have too many weak men in DC. But that is because they won't stand up to lobbyist and for the Constitution. Not because they have never been in a bar fight and go to Church on Sundays.



BTW, am I the only one who has trouble getting National Review to load?

Huckabee is almost as much a fraud as Romney. And that's saying something. The times are too serious to indulge in wishful thinking. Want a VP? Pick Hunter, he's serious. He's real.

And by the by, passion and reason are not mutually exclusive. Huckabee would continue the flawed, failed and deeply mortifying policies of Bush and Rice.

We need somebody who can kick-ass. There are three people who look like they fit the bill, McCain, Giuliani and Hunter. Take your pick.

I'm just wondering if Huckabee's wishful-thinking historical revisionism is part of his "sheer nothing-to-lose joie de vivre" that makes him presidential timbre.
