Have to find it interesting when a candidate for the President of the United States fields questions about whether or not he would be interested in serving as the VP of the US. However, that is the case with Gov. Mike Huckabee.
In an interview given today, the former Baptist Pastor said that it would take “serious thought before he’d consider pairing with a candidate who supports a woman’s right to choose.” This is obviously a reference to Rudy Giuliani, who after a strong showing in Tuesday’s SC Debate has likely solidified his position as the front runner. Many pundits gave Huckabee high marks, and some had stated that he may be able to draw serious consideration as a Vice Presidential Candidate.
“While Huckabee did not specifically name rival Rudy Giuliani, who has said he is personally opposed to abortion but supports a woman’s right to choose. Huckabee has questioned that position.”
It seems that former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has managed to be to the right of the Democratic Party Candidates as his position has been drawing criticism from the Left, and he has also of course drawn tremendous criticism from the right with more Conservative elements of the GOP. It will be interesting to see if there is enough ground for the former mayor in the political center of this most polarizing of issues.
