Could a Clinton carry Arkansas

Posted By on Thu, May 25, 2006 at 5:59 AM

We finally got around to breezing through the transcript of Gov. Huckabee's interview with a Washington Post blogger and Post political writer Dan Balz. (Here's the summary on the blog, which includes many subsequent reader comments, including some from folks who aren't exactly hometown admirers.) Thought this might be of interest:

One last question. If the name Huckabee is not on the national ballot in 2008, could Sen. Clinton carry Arkansas?

I think it would be tough, and a lot of it would depend on who the Republican nominee is. ... If the Republican did not have some Southern roots and was not perceived as really sort of a person ideologically in touch and in tune with Arkansas, Hillary could [win] perhaps. But it would be a tough one.

And her husband?

Probably so. Not by more than about 52 or 53 percent. But he'd carry it.
