Misunderestimating Rick Santorum
by

Mea culpa. Did I underestimate Rick Santorum, screwing up my Iowa predictions. In addition to his win — and this is a win even if Mitt Romney somehow scrounges up a five-vote margin over Santorum — the former senator gave a great speech that shows he has given some serious thought as to how to compete with Romney for the nomination while maintaining real crossover appeal for the general.

I still have my doubts as to whether Santorum has the tools necessary to be a successful anti-Romney candidate. But he worked hard for his Iowa win, he deserved it, and he should enjoy it. On the issues where we agree, we agree strongly. I’ll leave the issues where we disagree just as strongly for another day. I’ll try not to misunderestimate him again.
