I don't understand how people can like a guy's policies and ideas and yet vote for a guy with almost the opposite ideas because he has a better live-TV personality. I don't believe this happened when newspapers were the only mass media, and people had to evaluate candidates on their words and records and not their !*#$(# hair.
Whichever un-conservative non-Huckabee who finally wins the most delegates should pick him up at VP.
OTOH, eight years ago when I didn't like W all that much, I figured he couldn't screw it up too badly with Cheney backing him up, and I seem to have been naive.
