George Will won't make too many friends among Christian conservatives with this passage about Mike Huckabee:

Huckabee says "only one explanation" fits his Iowa success "and it's not a human one. It's the same power that helped a little boy with two fish and five loaves feed a crowd of 5,000 people." God so loves Huckabee's politics that He worked a Midwest miracle on his behalf?

Should someone so delusional control nuclear weapons? (link)

Will is conservative, of course, but this is one of several columns in which he heaps praise on Barack Obama:

Barack Obama, who might be mercifully closing the Clinton parenthesis in presidential history, is refreshingly cerebral amid this recrudescence of the paranoid style in American politics. He is the un-Edwards and un-Huckabee -- an adult aiming to reform the real world rather than an adolescent fantasizing mock-heroic "fights" against fictitious villains in a left-wing cartoon version of this country.

David Brooks, the "moderate" conservative columnist of the NYTimes, has written something similar. He praises Barack Obama and slams Huckabee. I think both Obama and Huckabee tapped into an evangelical vote in Iowa. I also think there are probably more (quiet) evangelicals than you might expect in New Hampshire, and both men could again have a good day. To the consternation of conservative pundits everywhere.
