No VP slot for Huckabee

Mike Huckabee, speaking at a National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Kentucky on May 16, was interrupted by a loud noise. Huckabee joked, "That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He's getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he -- he dove for the floor."

That night he apologized on his blog: "During my speech at the NRA a loud noise backstage, that sounded like a chair falling, distracted the crowd and interrupted my speech. I made an off hand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama. I apologize that my comments were offensive, that was never my intention."
