More On Huckabee's Vice Presidential Prospects

An earlier post on this blog predicted that Mike Huckabee will be number two on the ticket if either Giuliani or Romney wins the Republican presidential nomination. Today, the New York Sun supports this prediction, at least with respect to a Giuliani-Huckabee pairing.

According the Sun, Giuliani and Huckabee have "avoided direct conflict, exchanging more compliments than criticism." The Sun reports certain political analysts' view that "[a]s an affable Southerner with a solidly conservative record on social issues, Mr. Huckabee could provide precisely the kind of geographic and political balance needed for a ticket topped by an occasionally abrasive New Yorker who supports abortion rights."
