The thinking conservatives make their endorsement

As I was telling a liberal Democrat friend (yes, I have them) earlier today, all the thinking conservatives are lining up against Huckabee.
And today, National Review makes their endorsement:
The endorsement editorial is here. The conclusion:
More than the other primary candidates, Romney has President Bush’s virtues and avoids his flaws. His moral positions, and his instincts on taxes and foreign policy, are the same. But he is less inclined to federal activism, less tolerant of overspending, better able to defend conservative positions in debate, and more likely to demand performance from his subordinates.
I have found myself arriving at a very similar conclusion over the past few weeks. Too bad Ohioans' votes will come too late to matter.
