In the Des Moines Register, no less. Ouch.
Huckabee should really remember Ronald Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment. It’s one thing to distance yourself from an unpopular President, but it’s a fine line between “distancing yourself” and “openly attacking.” (But then again, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain certainly can’t throw that stone and I suspect if I looked hard enough I could find reasons why Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson can’t, either. Just that kind of year, I guess.)
Anyway, I’m guessing that the Huckster’s short list for potential running mates is now one name shorter. Then again, if the Huckster has started to put together a short list, he’s getting ahead of himself by at least six weeks. No Republican should be putting together a short list – at least, not just yet.
