Wednesday, September 3, 2008; 9:31 PM
SPEAKER: FORMER GOV. MIKE HUCKABEE, R-ARK.
[*] HUCKABEE: Thank you. Well, let me say that, as much as I appreciate this magnificent opportunity to speak tonight, I've got to be honest with you. I was originally hoping for the slot on Thursday night called the acceptance speech. (LAUGHTER)
But I want you to also know that I am genuinely delighted to be here to speak on behalf of my second choice for the Republican nomination for president, John McCain.
John McCain is a man with the character and the stubborn kind of integrity that we need in a president.
