Yeah, good luck with that. The GOP base wants red meat, the bloodier the better. It's why the birther issue is still around, and why there's so much apocalyptic language surrounding Obama on the right.

I really wish Huntsman had waited until 2016. There's no chance for any candidate that intends to run a respectful campaign in the 2012 GOP.

re: #1 Lidane

Imagine this though... Obama wins re-election and Huntsman stayed on as ambassador. Would he have to wait until 2020? He would still be pegged as the Obama sympathizer no matter what.

re: #2 RanchTooth

The only reason I think he should have waited until 2016 is because I want the GOP to nominate a full-out, batshit crazy wingnut that appeals to the base but has zero chance on the national stage. That's not Huntsman.

The only way to get rid of the religious whackjobs and the teabagger idiots that are making both the Republican party and this country dumber and more reactionary is by the GOP suffering a Mondale-style defeat with a True Believer at the helm. That way, the excuse for any loss can't be because the nominee was a RINO or librul.

Maybe after that, the adults could come back into the room and take over once more, and someone like Huntsman, with his career as an ambassador, could set himself up as a statesman and mature adult instead of the frothing wingnuts the GOP has now.

re: #3 Lidane

You are right; if Romney is the nominee and he loses, the wingnuts will say it was because he wasn't conservative enough. However, I would still prefer someone sane as the GOP nominee, just because I don't want to risk a Bachmann presidency, no matter how small the likelihood of her or someone like her actually winning the general election is. I don't think there is any chance that Huntsman will be the nominee; his support is virtually nonexistent, and the fact that he worked for Obama (even though serving your country when asked is supposed to be the patriotic thing to do) and refuses to blow dog whistles makes him very unappealing to the base. Hopefully he can elevate the debate a bit while he is in the race, and if Romney does win, he can serve the country honorably in the next administration.

I look forward to seeing more from Huntsman, who, by the way, is not a wizard.

Well, that answers one question.
