Lopez: Huckabee “No Savior for McCain”

Kathryn Jean Lopez explains why Huckabee woudn’t “give divine strength to the GOP ticket”: “The problem with Huckabee is that he is not conservative… Although Huckabee struck an attractive populist tone, his solutions tend to be statist…Huckabee ran on identity politics — usually a mainstay of liberal Democrats…With McCain’s own troubled past and record with conservatives, he doesn’t need to add to the ideological muddle.”
