After arguing the case for Republicans attempting to court the women vote, Dave Briggs noted that many were speculating Republicans had a bigger job for Huckabee than TV host, citing Mike Allen among those putting Huckabee on a short list. Briggs asked simply whether Huckabee would contemplate it.
“I like to put it like this: don’t buy the corsage for the prom until you get the date. It’s just not good form!” he replied, giving no other hints as to what he would do. As a social values conservative who hasn’t done as much to injury Romney’s reputation as Rick Santorum, depending on his favorables, Huckabee could wind up on the short list rather swiftly.
