    This is too funny. I might actually vote for the guy.

    He's a great guy and the most qualified of all the repubs for POTUS.

    He actually is the bext thing they got at this juncture.. too bad the repubs are so fractured and 'evangelical'....

    I know voting is a private matter, but if you don't mind me asking, what would you do if your choice was Obama v Huntsman (assuming that Huntsman has a reasonable qualified VP candidate) ?

    His Mandarin was OK. And it doesn't come across as too scripted (although I'm sure he thought about it way before the show).

    As for voting, if he does the following (which he's done in the past), I would vote for him:
    --stop calling for repealing ACA and Dodd-Frank
    --reendorse cap-n-trade and immigration reform (which he's done before as governor of Utah)
    --make civil unions and/or gay marriage a plank in his platform, not just lip service
    --call austerity by its real effects, namely, economic contraction
    --unequivocally denounce birtherism

    Those are just some I can think of now, but I'm sure I'll be more demanding if he actually makes it.

    I've followed him for a long long time and heard him in conversation and according to my BF, he's very good.

    "--stop calling for repealing ACA and Dodd-Frank

    no NO.

    The rest I can agree with.
