Mike Huckabee stopped by Stephen Colbert’s show last night to clear up Colbert’s assertion that John McCain has won the Republican nomination. They played foosball to explain how Huckabee could still win. In a statement released earlier Huckabee said, “As a true authentic, consistent, conservative, I have a vision to bring hope, opportunity and prosperity to all Americans, and I’d like to ask for and welcome the support of those who had previously been committed to Mitt.” That might be a tough sell since he has spent so much time trashing Romney the last few months. “This is a two-man race for the nomination, and I am committed to marching on. I believe in the importance of a strong national defense, which includes winning the war against Islamic extremists and the protection of American sovereignty,” Huckabee continued. It looks like Huckabee is counting on anti-McCain votes from the far right to power broker his way into a V.P. slot, because he has no shot at getting the nomination despite his foosball skills.
