It shoulda been Huck

David Yepsen of the Des Moines Register says John McCain made the wrong choice for running mate.

John McCain should have picked Mike Huckabee instead of Sarah Palin to be his running mate. This race would be different today.

Let's face it. Palin has turned out to be a liability. Huckabee would not have been for several reasons:

This piece is just idle talk at this point, but very important for one reason. It shows Yepsen's continuing fascination with Huckabee. He was extremely warm toward Huck during the 2007 Iowa caucuses and is viewed nationally as the go-to guy on Iowa politics. I'm not so taken by Yepsen, a cornfed Broder, but he's undeniably a powerful person to have in your corner for 2012.
