Huffington Post discusses the 2008 GOP Nightmare Dream Team: McCain - Huckabee


Bill Bradley: McCain / Huckabee Toughest GOP Ticket

Posted January 30, 2008 | 07:57 PM (EST)

On John McCain: "I think McCain is the toughest opponent, without any doubt. The toughest ticket is McCain/Huckabee. If you look at how Republicans have won the last twelve years, they need that Christian Right base. If I were McCain, I'd select Huckabee and say, 'Okay! See you on Election Day! Go out there and mobilize the Christian Right!' McCain is difficult . When he gave his acceptance speech in New Hampshire--these days I'm reduced to watching all this on TV--in his acceptance speech he talked about service, and it was the real thing, it was moving. And he has a life that personifies his message, which is really important. . . . I think McCain will not campaign dirty, and I actually think we could have a debate where a Conservative could stand up and make his points about why we should be in Iraq and fight the war, and Barack could say why we shouldn't be in Iraq and why we should leave. You could have somebody talk about why government should do nothing except collect taxes and fund national defense. And Barack could talk about how the government is the collective representation of all our best selves, and the right moment held accountable. It could be a really great debate."
