Huckabee pulling beyond the margin is significant. He was the consensus winner of Wednesday's debate, and a focus group of voters in Iowa who watched the debate judged Huckabee the winner by a wide margin. I suspect he'll win Iowa but that leads to this question: does that translate to other wins in S. Carolina and Florida, or is Iowa an isolated occurance?

I suspect that he could get a burst of momentum from an Iowa victory and follow that up in S. Carolina. When the smoke clears, it's not a crazy notion that Mike Huckabee could be the nominee of the Republican party.
