One thought on “The Two Earthquakes”
I read Brooks’ column this morning and was similarly impressed. I agree with his sense of Obama’s growing momentum. I think the Iowa outcome is one indication that the American people are ready to turn the page on the Bush/Clinton political chapter of the last 20 years in favor of a fresh voice.
His comments on Huckabee were interesting as well. I think he’s right-on with his positive assessment of Huckabee (particularly in the desire of both Republicans and evangelicals to pay more attention to those making under $50,000/year). What I don’t think he accentuates enough is the conservative distrust or dislike of Romney as a Mormon. Whether that will continue to be a liability for Mitt is something that remains to be seen. Whether the fault lines exposed will help McCain (as Brooks seems to think) is an open question as well.
