Gimme a break. Rudy Giuliani has had a hard enough time convincing Republicans that he's a conservative. McCain doesn't need another "maverick" like Giuliani, let alone someone who would, supposedly, pull in northeastern states. He needs someone that can motivate either evangelicals or someone who can reassure the party establishment that he won't go too far left -- I mean, "maverick."

Huckabee might be it for the evangelical ticket, but in terms of calming the worries of the establishment, he's hardly it. McCain would be better off with a popular governor of a southern state.
