Huckabee Bikes His Way to Dorkdom


It's not the normal way to draw attention to a vice presidential bid, but former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has rarely been conventional. And that certainly goes for his new mode of transportation: riding through Little Rock, Ark., on a Specialized or Trek bicycle. "My kids think I look like a dork, but it's the ultimate multitasking of getting in a good workout, saving fuel and money, and getting my errands done," Huckabee tells us. "I do get some strange looks using the drive-through window at the bank on a bicycle sometimes," says the champion dieter—who is said to be on Sen. John McCain's short list of vice presidential possibilities.
