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 TheSpoof.com 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.
