Mike Huckabee on Tuesday said he has not been approached by John McCain about being the U.S. presidential candidate's running mate. But he'd certainly consider the offer.
Huckabee said he didn't think anyone who has run for the U.S. presidency would turn down a chance to be vice president. The former Arkansas governor dropped out of the presidential race last March after McCain clinched the Republican nomination.
Speaking to reporters in Jerusalem, Huckabee said he has received "no indication" that McCain is considering him as a running mate. But if asked, Huckabee said it would be hard to resist.
"I don't think anybody that runs for president turns around and says no," he said. Still, he said he did not consider himself a candidate, adding it would be "disrespectful" to suggest names.
McCain may name his running mate between the end of the Democratic convention on Aug. 28 and the start of the Republican convention on Sept. 1

somebody please, shut the Huck up...
Maybe he should try Obama, I hear he wants to appeal to the evangelical vote.
In other news, I’d consider being offered the winning lottery numbers for Friday.
Schmuckabee????????/ G-d Forbid! Ptui!
I’m sure he was just answering a reporter’s question ... hard to fault him there.
But it’s not going to be Huck.
DON’T MESS WITH ARKANSAS!
Thanks for the humor, Huck! I appreciate his charm and speaking skills, but his nanny state sentiments are a liability.
I say let him be McCain’s HHS Secretary.
Usually this is the equivalent of the kid that jumps up and down with his hands in the air screaming “Pick Me! Pick Me!”
Of course, those are the kids that get picked last.
If Chucklebee is the V.P. choice, count me out.
He’s another smarmy, nanny-state elitist.

Hahahahaha That’s ok Mike I think McCain has the job filled already. lol
Huck has spent too much time on his political knees in the past few months to even be considered. ;-)
What, wasn’t Dennis Kucinich available ? Hey, if Huckster and Slick Willard think they’re qualified...
