Regarding Mike Huckabee as the VP nominee, one point most commentators don’t consider is his nomination as Obama’s VP. There are some major clues out there:

1) Obama’s focus on evangelical vote

5) Huckabee’s proven appeal as a serious vote-getter among evangelicals, especially when compared to McCain.
