Iowa Evangelicals Repudiate Conservatism

The rise of Huckabee has confirmed one of my nagging doubts about Evangelicals commitment to conservative principles, once you get past the to right to life issue. The Iowa caucus shows that they will jettison all other conservative principles to support a Christian Socialist like Huckabee. The Jesus-Uber-Alles crowd maybe devout, but they aren't conservatives if Huckabee is who they think should be President. But, winning Iowa does not guarantee anything; Bush lost Iowa in 2004.

Also, seeing as how Iowa has gone Democrat the last few Presidential elections, this may be a blip rather than a harbinger.
