It seems to me that Mike Huckabee would be a smart VP choice for John McCain. Friday night, I pitched the idea to some libertarians at the same conference with me and they thought it was a terrible idea. Not just substantively frightening, but politically deadly as well. Indeed, some accused me of arguing in bad faith, dreaming of Huck sinking the GOP ticket. To me, this only makes the case more compelling. As a guide to cynical electoral politics “do what the libertarians are telling you not to do” seems like a pretty sound rule of thumb.
