    He should leave the Republican party and run as a Democrat in 2016. He's definitely got the chops to be President.

    Huntsman is a true conservative; maybe the only one to survive the radicalism of the New Right take over of the Republican Party.

    I doubt all of his beliefs are consonant with the Democratic Party, but he would garner more attention and support from Democrats, in particular moderate Democrats, than he has gotten from radicalized Republicans.

    This is what I keep telling the wingnuts but, unfortunately, they aren't listening....

    Huntsman would make a very interesting President and while I think socially he's be toxic to the hard left, the sensible center of the American political spectrum is not far from Huntsman's positions.

    Curious...did the crowd erupt in cheering after Romney said that bizarre statement?

    Indeed, that was a spot on assessment. Huntsman for once stood out and I liked a few of his ideas. Too little too late though.

    True.

    And very well said.

    That Huntsman isn’t the GOP nominee is indicative of a GOP devoid of character; there is at least one qualified candidate in the republican field.
