More Thoughts on Presidential Politics

Mitt Romney is suspending his Presidential campaign according to the latest information from CNN ( From his perspective, I can understand the reasoning – why throw millions of dollars more down a black hole. The scary prospect is that now McCain may do the unthinkable and ponder Mike Huckabee as a possible VP running mate to placate the Christianists in the GOP and bring some forced unity to the party. To me, that is a frightening prospect - given McCain’s age, there would be a distinct possibility that Huckabee would become president at some point. Canada here I come if that ever happens. Lest you forget, here are Huckabee’s views on gays via Pam’s House Blend (;jsessionid=CA091B47D15C3C117B3CA045F9136B3E?diaryId=4422):

"It is now difficult to keep track of the vast array of publicly endorsed and institutionally supported aberrations--from homosexuality and pedophilia to sadomasochism and necrophilia." and this:

"I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural and sinful lifestyle. That's millions of Americans." and...

"Lawrence v. Texas is an extreme example of judicial activism. It could, in fact, be inappropriately used to attack our marriage laws nationwide." plus...

"I think the radical view is to say that we're going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal."

I can only hope that McCain will give some thought before doing anything so damaging to the prospects of the nation. Huckabee is a menace to everything the Constitution stands for.

Meanwhile, starting tomorrow evening and continuing over the weekend , Obama volunteers will be phone banking from my office phones. With a McCain-Huckabee now being a distinct possibility, it is CRITICAL that the Democrats wake up and nominate the candidate that can be victorious in November.
