An article by TIME magazine dated Nov. 2, 2013 detailed the "nightmare" that Romney's campaign had when they tried to vet Chris Christie. It mentions that Romney's assistant in charge of picking and vetting possible VPs gave him 25 names, and Romney whittled it down to just 11 names...including Mike Huckabee's: ... ufferfish/

In April she presented Romney with a list of two dozen names, which he whittled down to 11: Kelly Ayotte, John Cornyn, Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels, Bill Frist, Mike Huckabee, Bob McDonnell, Tim Pawlenty, Rob Portman, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan.

Within a month, the vetters had assembled preliminary research books on the 11, which Romney perused and then rendered his short list: Christie (Pufferfish), Pawlenty (Lakefish), Portman (Filet o Fish), Rubio (Pescado) and Ryan (Fishconsin).

Thank God he didn't get the VP nod - I think Romney still would have lost (though it might have been closer), and that would have killed Mike's chances for 2016.
