    among the GOP presidential candidates. I wish him luck. If he can get some traction, I would actually believe that the GOP has a future beyond the nuttiness and the insanity we have seen in the last two years. It would be really important that the two party system in the US is healthy and sound and based on two rational political parties. America will decline rapidly if insanity and craziness continue to spread.

      And I don't mean that as an insult.

      Ideology is an excuse to ignore common sense.

      Huntsman would be open to running on the Bachmann ticket based on an interview with Piers Morgan.  Huntsman's comment was taken out of context.  IMO, he made a general comment about his philosophy about serving his country, not serving with Bachmann as VP.

      Bill Prendergast's Diary "Why you don't want her on the that ticket":

      Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman was interviewed last week by Piers Morgan, and part of the sit-down airs tonight (with more tomorrow). Would he ever run as Mitt Romney's running mate? "I can't imagine it at all," he said. But how about Rep. Michele Bachmann?

      "If you love this country, you serve her," said Huntsman. "If you're in a position to better the country, to bring whatever background you have to bear, whatever experiences to use in fine-tuning our future, I'll be the first person to sign up." Still, Huntsman acknowledged this was a hypothetical situation, and that his campaign is to win the presidential nomination...

      Don't tell me what you believe. And don't tell me what you do. I barely know you.
