If he wanted the VP spot he should have endorsed some one who might win.
I’m frustrated by this as well... but look at it this way. Huckabee is the only guy Hunter is still on good terms with. Hunter has criticized Romney on Bain Capital, McCain on immigration, Thompson on China (though he’s not a factor now), and said he would not compromise on Abortion (nixing Giuliani). Huckabee has complemented Hunter... so this is his only shot at a cabinet position or VP run. Not sure if I agree or like it yet... but I can understand partially his reasoning. Hunter is idealistic, and he has things he wants to get done and right now this may be his only avenue to do it.
