    It looks like that is what is happening. Cruz seemed to be throwing his clown hat in the ring the other day.

    Hillary might as well start figuring out what rules to pin on the first "gentleman".

    Yes, it's very preliminary, and a lot can happen between now and then, but if you had to venture a guess, what do you think of Jon Huntsman's chances for gaining the Republican nomination for President in 2016? Do you think he made enough of a name for himself to be honestly considered by enough people next time?
    Huntsman IMO would be a good candidate not to extreme and on the "hot topic issues" kind of middle of the road in general
    Jon Huntsman on the Issues


    He has evolved on equal rights for gays he now supports them.
    "All Americans should be treated equally by the law, whether they marry in a church, another religious institution, or a town hall. This does not mean that any religious group would be forced by the state to recognize relationships that run counter to their conscience. Civil equality is compatible with, and indeed promotes, freedom of conscience."

    He supports the 2nd amendment

    not so good on the antiabortion front to extreme

    seems good on government reform, corporations and crime and some other issues


    but my guess is with politics current scene like it is, "sterotypical" him supporting equal rights (some how this has become bad) will NEVER allow him to get the republican nomination and thats sad.

    Re: Huntsman 2016?

    Watching the Republican debates last year, Huntsman was the only one who didn't come off as a complete clown. I simply do not know enough about him to say if I'd vote for him, but I would have at least been willing to give him an honest chance to win my vote. I assume my position on him would be the same in 4 years.

    Of course, like others in this thread have noted, the fact he wasn't a clown in those debates are what kept him from having any real chance of winning and would likely prevent him from winning next round as well.

    Hillary isn't the shining Joan of Arkansas that you leftwing women think she is. She lost to Obama after all.

    She's also aged very poorly and she's gonna be really long in the tooth come 2016.

    Given your politics that means he was the most RINOesque of the bunch

    Anyone who is pro freedom is probably clownish to you

    And yet, significantly better than what the Republicans will likely throw out at election time.

    Huntsman is no doubt a capable man but conservatives are in no mood to run another candidate designed to placate the moderates and independents. In general people tend to respect and get motivated by a firm opinion, even if they disagree, rather than a man who is a reed that sways with the wind.

    Santorum and Romney didn't come off as clowns, except as edited for the purpose of making them look that way.

    that is either right or wrong. If you are a socialist then that is true-there are at least two components to this issue

    a) what are the policies of the candidate

    b) what are the personal qualities of the candidate

    I tend to worry about the a thing more than b.

    you might come up with a really good person but if he's a gun banning tax hiking socialist I would vote for a woodchuck over him

    So you being a "progressive" that means you want a far lefty and clinton is probably the best choice even though personally she's pretty scummy
