Huckabee: Condi pick would be a "disaster"

Mike Huckabee, on his radio show, commenting on the Condi for VP story that gripped headlines last week.

Huckabee..... declared it would be “a disaster” if Romney were to name Rice his No. 2.

“They’d sit on their hands,” Huckabee said of his fellow social conservatives. “Absolutely they will.”

Meanwhile, Richard Land, the influential social conservative and president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, says he went into overdrive after the Condi chatter.

“I contacted my contacts within the campaign and said, ‘You can’t do this'."

.... Choosing Rice for the No. 2 job, Land added “would deactivate some pro-life activists and contributors into being mere voters, and some mere voters into being fishermen” — meaning they wouldn’t bother to vote at all.
