In the beginning I was leaning towards Fred Thompson. Had he led a more spirited campaign and actually proved that he was conservatism’s best hope I could have rallied to his banner. Instead his campaign was late, lethargic, and lacking of any substance. That’s too bad. I always felt that a Thompson/Huckabee ticket would have appealing to a broad swath of conservatives, and it would have established Huckabee for a future presidential run.
Both Huckabee and Thompson have announced their support of John McCain.He has not secured my vote, but I believe that I can back the Arizona senator with a clear conscience. He was not my first or even second choice, but as of this moment I am not preparing to write in a vote.
While I believed a Thompson/Huckabee ticket would be compelling, I do not feel the same way about a McCain/Huckabee team. Who should be the VP choice? I don’t know. Who would you choose?
