  •  But actually a pretty decent, smart one. (9+ / 0-)

    His politics are somewhere between Bob Casey, Jim Jeffords and Andrew Sullivan.

    I actually really like the guy, and wish he would just go independent, as he has no place in the contemporary GOP. He even refused to attend the Republican National Convention because he felt the party platform was too exclusionary.

    The man's favorite band is Captain Beefheart, fer chrissakes. No Republican likes Captain Beefheart.

    I have no problem if Huntsman Jr is picked. He was a good Ambassador to China, and pushed firmly on human rights – completely in accord with the Clinton/Rice State Dept.

    And I really worry about losing John Kerry's seat to Scott Brown.

    •  Agree on his good points, but I'd never trust him. (0+ / 0-)

      The thing is, over the years the Repubs have used foreign policy to destroy Dem admins (Bay of Pigs, Iran hostage crisis, etc), and I simply would never trust a Repub in that position. The potential for collusion with the R party to undermine the admin is far too great.
