Who Would Want to Pluck Huck?

Quin Hillyer believes that Mike Huckabee wants to be Vice-President of the United States.

Lets assume Quin is right. The problem is that Huckabee would be operating under the assumption that the eventual Republican nominee would want him to be his or her running mate. Somehow I can’t imagine Huckabee wanting to be Mitt Romney’s number two. Or for that matter Romney’s anything.

The only scenario under which I can see the GOP nominee picking Huckabee would be if that nominee needed to shore up support amongst social conservatives. That certainly wouldn’t apply to someone like Sarah Palin.

If there is a Republican who could use Huckabee’s help it might be Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. After all, Daniels did raise the ire of social conservatives when he called for a “truce” on social issues last year. If social conservatives still had reservations about Daniels, Huckabee could prove a useful asset. But, of course, this assumes that Daniels will run.

Personally, I am inclined to think that Huckabee wants neither to be President nor Vice-President at this time. Why give up playing bass to play second fiddle?
