What Would Huckabee Have Done

Jeopardize the future U.S. economy for a cheap, transparent, and assuredly ineffective political stunt, that’s what.

McCain, Huckabee said, “had a tough current to swim against,” but he might have saved his campaign by opposing the bailout for populist reasons: “Had he gone back to Washington and put a stake in the ground and said, ‘By gosh, I’m not voting for this—I’ll stand against it and fight it with everything in me,’ I think he might have turned the election.”

Presumably, this fight also would have required “suspending” the campaign — again”for populist reasons,” but…um…for real this time.
