Or is Huckabee a better VP candidate?

He saves lives!

Oh, Huckabee has to physically touch those he saves? Obama merely has to shine the radiance of his countenance upon the hapless choker to save them! Some say a picture of Obama or even mere mention of his name is enough. I can attest to this as last night while I was eating I happened upon an Obama speech on television and immediately all the food I had just consumed was violently ejected. I wasn't choking in the first place, but still...

Dick Cheney, on the other hand, can actually cause people to choke to death simply with a gesture of his black-gloved hand.

If McCain picks Huckabee I may join Rev on the sidelines.

If McCain picks Huckabee I am moving to Canada.

Well, not MOVING moving -- Alec Baldwin moving. That's where you keep hanging around southern California but don't enjoy it as much.

Someone should found a town called Canada in Maine or Idaho or some other state so people who say they are going to Canada when x happens will have a place to go.

Agreed a Huckabee or Brownback for VP pick is about the only situation where I could see myself not voting for John McCain. It’s not because of their stance on social issues, it’s because they’ve fully embraced the big government “compassionate conservatism” mentality of the last seven years.

McCain is hardly a libertarian (e.g. McCain-Feingold) but he voted against Medicare Part D, opposes farm subsidies, and has been terrific on supporting entitlement reform and consumer directed health care reform. As his VP nominee is likely going to be the heir apparent in 2016 or possibly as early as 2012, I want to make sure it’s someone who will fight for cutting government spending and moving away from the Nanny State to empowering individuals to take control of their own health care, retirement, and education.

You miss the point about Huckabee. He is a way to subliminally raise the issue of Obama's pastor problems without actually mentioning the Rev Wright. McCain could say that he originally chose Huckabee for his political advice but that he has learned to turn to him for spiritual guidance. Perhaps Huckabee could preach a sermon about the need for racial tolerance at a black church and McCain could choose a phrase from that sermon as the title for his campaign biography.

McCain should pick Joe L as his VP.
All the "Libertarians", Evangelicals, and conservatives will vote for him any way. They have no where else to go. They grumble and complain but they always wimp out and vote Republican.

He needs to reach out to the center, and nominating a liberal democrat will unite the nation behind him.

The problem with that argument is that I'm not legally obligated to vote at all. If McCain thinks "ha ha, they have nowhere to go" then that's exactly where I'll be going on election day: nowhere. As in, "nowhere near the voting booth".

He needs to reach out to the center, and nominating a liberal democrat will unite the nation behind him.

He's already closer to the center than Obama is. He needs to reach out to the core Republican constituencies that are sick to death of the last six years of Republican fecklessness.
