Gilmore's departure good for Huckabee

I heard late last night that former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore has withdrawn from the crowded field of Republican presidential candidates.

This is a good thing for Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas who I believe should be our next president.

I have told a lot of you socks in one-on-one conversations that the best formula for success (for either party) involves nominating someone from a southern state with executive branch experience.

True, Virginia is only on the fringe of the Sun Belt. But, given that criteria, Gilmore was the only other GOP hopeful besides Huckabee who could meet it.

Now, would anyone care to speculate when John McCain will withdraw?

Oh, and before I forget to mention it, the Huckabee campaign has added The Sock in the Dryer to their list of blog links:

Go, Mike, go!
