So Mike Huckabee wants to be John McCain’s running mate, an announcement I missed because, like a good potential Huckabee voter, I was in church while the Sunday morning talk shows were broadcasting. Campaigning openly for the vice presidency doesn’t always turn out well in the best of circumstances. Doing so right after joking that someone at the NRA convention pointed a gun at Barack Obama is, well, not the best of circumstances. I don’t think there was any malice on Huckabee’s part when he made his Obama gaffe. But I do think it shows spectactularly poor judgment and the potential for some Quayle-ian moments should he get the vice presidential nod.
