Huckabee says he doesn't want to be VP

Posted by David Postman

Mike Huckabee was in Seattle last week to play a little rock and roll and talk some politics, of course. Laura Mansfield and Will Mari of seattlepoliticore interviewed the former GOP presidential candidate. Huckabee tried to clear one thing up:

According to Huckabee, he is not seeking out the Vice Presidency. However, with the latest controversy surrounding McCains support of Rod Parsley and John Hagees endorsement, both whom McCain rejected publicly yesterday, it may be McCain that seeks out Huckabee for VP. In short, the evangelical vote.

You can read a transcript of the politicore interview with Huckabee here. The former Arkansas governor gave a hint, but no details, of a book he’s working on.

How are you doing after the election and the primary season?

“Almost as busy as I was during the campaign,” he said, adding that that he’s done a lot of speaking on behalf of people running for the House and Senate, and, of course, Sen. John McCain.

“Then also, [I have] been working on my future of what I’m going to do, and some of that involves writing a book that will come out in November,” he said.

Huck declined to give much in the way of details.

“I have to kind of keep it very general. The publisher wants me to keep things very mysterious for now, but essentially it’ll be a book on the overall direction of American and where it’s headed.”

Along with his book project, he’s “looking at some media opportunities that I’m trying to nail down … I’m certainly not lacking for something to do.”
