  •  I have no relations close to the (0+ / 0-)

    Huntsman campaign!

    I'll defer to your friend's first cousin's account.  

    If I had the 10,000 bucks to bet that Mitt Romney thinks I have, I'd bet that Huntsman has almost no chance at all at the 2012 Republican nomination.  

    A political party that has let itself be disgraced this long by the kind of candidates it is pushing forward doesn't seem like one that would tolerate Jon Huntsman.  

    I'm not sure they'd be that hog-wild about him in 2016 either.

      His bet is that Obama wins and the race in 2016 is wide open. His challenge is staying in the public eye for four years. The GOP likes to nominate someone who is not a first timer on the national stage.

      •  I could see that strategy from (0+ / 0-)

        Huntsman's point of view.  

        What is harder to picture is what the GOP is going to do with their large percentage of disaffected voters.  Especially the hard-line, fundie base.  Those folks are already throwing a fit.  

        I'd love to see the Republican Party just go to pieces over factional grudges.  It would be long overdue and well-deserved.
