Huntsman 4 Prez

Joining his BFFs Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Willard Romney, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul, former Utah governor and current US ambassador to China Jon Huntsman has filed papers with the Federal Election Commission to create a federal political action committee called "H-PAC," which "will allow him to pay for staff and travel to key caucus and primary states as he considers a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. Huntsman will not form an exploratory committee and will simply make a final decision about a White House bid early this summer, a spokesman told CNN Tuesday."

Huntsman is your pretty standard BOOTSTRAPS! fiscal conservative, and obviously he hates women no doy, but he has diverged from the Republican Party line on climate change by believing it exists and on supporting civil unions for same-sex couples. It will be interesting to see if he retains those principles once he jumps into a field where not believing in evolution is considered a desirable attribute by a large swath of the base.
