    Huntsman actually seems...dare I say it...


    A reasonable person? Is it dangerous to vie for someone when you know absolutely it's only their 10 minutes in the lime-light before they get probably get obliterated?

    Or will he actually be left standing after it?

    Every candidate who has come to spontaneous popularity has been obliterated irrevocably. Huntsman seems the most sane of the GOP right now.

    He does seem like a reasonable and intelligent guy. Actually, all of the Repo candidates sound better than Obama to me.

    I willing to bet that this thread about him will not be the direct cause of his inevitable expulsion from the Republican Presidential primaries.

    I guess what I'm saying is I want to get behind him because he seems sane, and rational, but I'm hesitant to do so because I know what happened to all of the previous GOP lime-lighters.

    Agreed.

    Understood, but it’s always best to be honest. If the TPM/radical right/social conservatives don’t want to support a pragmatic, intelligent, capable candidate, that’s their problem.

    Perhaps after Obama’s second term they’ll finally see the light.

    What's sane and rational about him? What's his ideology?

    Do you disagree with his reasoning? It seems fairly sound to me. Obama has proven he is willing to defend this country if he has to, Ron Paul has admitted to being absolutely unwilling to involve us in another war no matter what happens to the rest of the world. That's fairly dangerous as WWII taught us.

    Two-hundred fifty miles south of Manchester, N.H., in Manhattan, an unlikely and influential Huntsman supporter is excited for the candidate's prospects in the primary. Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a former Telecom executive and the wife of financier Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, was an outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008, and she backed John McCain after Obama won the nomination, angering many in the Democratic party.

    Now de Rothschild has backed another Republican, Jon Huntsman, although she's still a registered Democrat. She has also joined the board of a new hybrid political/nonprofit group, Americans Elect, which appears poised to place a third party candidate on the ballot in as many as 20 states next year.
