John McCain and Mike Huckabee were campaigning together today in Arkansas. Of course, the "Veep" question came up:
"McCain responded to that speculation by offering his "standard answer," saying he didn't want to mention any names because that quickly leads to an invasion of privacy for anyone being considered.
But McCain was quick to volunteer that "millions of Republican voters voted for Governor Huckabee" in the primaries, and that he wanted the former Arkansas governor to play a prominent role in his campaign. McCain noted Huckabee still has a 65 percent approval rating in Arkansas.
When reporters asked Huckabee if he planned to campaign for McCain, it was McCain who jumped in to answer with a ready "yes."
Huckabee, for his part, deflected a question about becoming McCain's running mate by saying, "The main thing is getting Senator McCain elected."
