Some Cornerites worry they may be shooting their wad too soon:

These past couple of weeks, I’ve been of two minds about Mike Huckabee. Mind number one: We’ve all been too hard on him. As conservatives, we’re meant to display a certain humility before the judgment of the voters, I reasoned, and the good people of Iowa have seen one whole heck of a lot more of Mike Huckabee (and of Mitt Romney) than has any blogger on this happy Corner (with the single exception of Byron York). And if Iowa Republicans like what they see in Huckabee, we ought to make good and sure we understand just what that is before permitting ourselves too terribly many denigrating snickers at his expense.

But Robinson is nonetheless appalled by Huckabee's criticism of Bush's war policy. And that counts more - if you're still in Washington.
