Why Romney Needs Huckabee


I explain in my column this week why Romney ought to choose Governor Huckabee for veep. The first rule is: Do no harm.

Huckabee is an experienced campaigner, fully vetted, who won’t make mistakes and won’t “outshine” Governor Romney.

He also will help solve a major Romney problem: He would energize the Evangelical base of the party. Not because of his positions. But because of his relationships.
