    heh, silly us to think anyone so reasonable had a chance in today's GOP.

    •  Huntsman didn't realy worry me (0+ / 0-)

        He's more rational than your average Republican (not the highest bar to clear, of course, but Huntsman is pretty well-grounded), but he was woefully uncharismatic. Like it or not, that does matter in elections. Ask Al Gore.

        The guy who really DID worry me was Huckabee. He could easily pass as a regular-guy faux-populist, and he could have challenged Obama on the economy without the Wall Street millstone around his neck. I was very relieved when he sat out the race.
