Can Huntsman save the GOP from itself?
May 2, 2009
Utah Republican governor Jon Huntsman supports civil unions, has eased Mormon-prescribed alcohol laws, and was second to jump into the Western Climate Initiative (after Schwarzenegger).
He’s been criticizing congressional Republicans for obstructionism, and other governors for turning down stimulus money.
And he has done all this without incurring the wrath of Rush, Steele or anyone else. Except the Kent County (Michigan) Republican party that is. Wooptidoo.
Very clever and strategic positioning. Plus he is young, good looking and speaks with nuance and clarity.
