Sigh, Brummett is right about Huckabee as a national presidential contender -- "the field is so dreadful Huckabee is no weaker than any and stronger than some."
Mark it down:
I can see Arkansas emerging in 2008 as the center of the political universe. You could have McCain-Huckabee for the Republicans. You'll almost certainly have Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. And I'm not sure that there's a potential running mate for her who would provide greater credibility, balance and gravitas than the four-star general from Arkansas, Wes Clark.
