SPECULATION OF THE DAY….Fact 1: John McCain is weak among evangelicals and hardcore conservatives. Fact 2: He was kissing Mike Huckabee’s ass big time in his victory speech last night. Fact 3: He and Huckabee cut a deal on Tuesday to keep Mitt Romney from winning in West Virginia. Fact 4: Huckabee isn’t going to win the nomination, but he’s staying in the race anyway. There must be a reason, hmmm?

Speculation 1: McCain will choose Huckabee as his VP in order to shore up his demographic weaknesses for the general election. Speculation 2: He’ll throw Huckabee under the bus just as soon as he has this thing sewn up. Which is it?
