Huckabee on short list for McCain VP

    Rumors have been flying since before McCain had the nomination clinched that he might choose former candidate and social conservative favorite Mike Huckabee as his running mate. McCain hasn’t made a move to choose a running mate, but that hasn’t stopped the whispers in the media.

    ABC News has reportedly assigned a slew of reporters to cover a number of possible picks, including Huckabee. Other people on that list include Condi Rice, Mitt Romney, presidential bro Jeb Bush, first Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, and a bunch of governors (including Bobby Jindal).

    The media can’t seem to contain its curiosity — even is getting in on the fun — but McCain has remained tight-lipped about who his pick will be. Maybe his cameo on the season finale of SNL this week — he hosted the show in 2002 but hasn’t been back since — will prove the perfect place for him to make an announcement…or not.
