FromDC2Iowa: It's Huckabee

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

My Republican Pick: Governor Mike Huckabee. "What's a Unitarian and
Democrat like you doing at an evangelical Christian rally for a
Republican presidential candidate like Huckabee?" a friend asked
yesterday. I explained, "Some partisans want to do all they can to see
to it that the opposing party picks the absolutely worst candidate
possible -- so they'll be easier to beat. That's never been my
approach. One of these parties' candidates is going to end up being
president. Given the Democrats' finely honed skill at snatching defeat
from the jaws of victory, even though 2008 should be the Democrats'
year we could just end up with another Republican president. If that
happens I'd like it to be someone the country can live with." Don't
get me wrong. I'll be voting for the Democrat. There may be some
scenario in which I would end up voting for a Republican president in
November 2008 -- it's just never happened before and I'm incapable of
imagining what it might be. But that doesn't mean I don't care who
their nominee turns out to be.
