I’ve supported Mike Huckabee from the beginning because of his character. John McCain is further from my political position. But, I cannot question his character. I have often written that there will not be a perfect candidate. But, I want a candidate that I can trust.
Anyway, with Mike Huckabee weekened by South Carolina, the evangelical vote is at risk of splintering. If the South Carolina trend holds true and McCain gets the nomination, McCain will need the evangelical vote to help him into the White House. Evangelical leaders have never been very supportive of McCain.
McCain will need some help to bring them into the fold. That help can come from Mike Huckabee. This is not insignificant. Fiscal conservatives will not vote democrat. And they wont vote for Bloomberg either. They will stay with the ticket. But, the evangelicals will need some convincing. And that is with Huckabee on the ticket.
