    Certainly a reasonable candidate. While I don't agree with him on a number of issues, I look forward to hearing what he has to say. Seems grounded
    and moderate. We'll see.

    I think as Americans get to know this former Utah Governor, the more they are going to like and admire him. Whether or not he has the charisma and the plan to get the nomination remains to be seen.

    Jon Huntsman will never get the repug nomination.
    He's way too sane and reasonable.

    He does have charisma; he is Mitt Romney's fifth cousin, after all. icon_wink.gif

    An interesting point that will hurt him with many GOP voters is his stance on gay rights. He doesn't believe in "gay marriage" because he believes that is an issue for churches to decide. He doesn't support a civil (non-religious based) union that provides right similar to a marriage.

    That may not be completely accurate, but that is my understanding of his position after talking with a campaign insider.

    I really think that he would give Obama a run for his money.
    But, he's too middle of the road for the blood thirsty, hate mongering, Republic party.
    So, he'll never get the nomination.

    Correct.
