From the American Spectator:

Less than six weeks after he signed on as the face of the national campaign, Huckabee senior political adviser Ed Rollins may be pushed out the door, according to Huckabee aides who are just beginning to sign on with the former Arkansas governor.

"[Rollins] stepped all over our victory narrative in Iowa with that stunt he pulled in the diner with that blogger," says one of the newcomers to the campaign, referring the Rollins overheard conversation in Iowa diner by a blogger, where he claimed that the Huckabee campaign would go negative in South Carolina against its competitors. "If there is a time to make some changes, it will be after South Carolina. We have lots of people lining up to help right now."

Perhaps that's a reference to political pundit Jim Pinkerton, who on Friday announced he was joining the Huckabee campaign in a senior position.
