    I've got to admit, I was surprised by how much of a non-factor Huntsman, a successful governor, remained throughout a topsy-turvy race that saw the Santorums and the Trumps dominating the field.

    I have to feel sorry for him: he resigned a governorship to take an ambassadorship that he then resigned to run a race that he's now quit. I'm sure he won't be leaving public life altogether, but he's tumbled quickly and far in just a few years.

    I knew he never stood a snowballs chance in hell, but he was a champion of some true causes, he fought valiantly, and I respect him for throwing his hat in the ring and trying to get his voice heard.

    Go well Huntsman. You really added to the discussion.

    Wow, who would have ever thunk it? I was sure he would endorse Rick Santorun or Newt.

    I liked Huntsman, but he just couldn't get traction. This won't effect South Carolina much as Huntsman was polling in there at under the margin of error last I heard.

    Still, I'm sad to see a rational voice fail to find a place in the process.
