Born at the Crest of the Empire

Oh look. It's another locally popular unknown Republican Governor who someone says is going to be the next face of the GOP......

Romney, Palin, Pawlenty, Jindal, .... Huntsman?
“It’s like the world began in November,” Mr. Huntsman, 48, a moderate second-term Republican with billionaire roots, intense personal popularity and obvious national ambitions, said in an interview in his office here.

Yes. I'm sure the governor of Utah will land smack in the middle of America's political spectrum because Utah is America's political future.

The thing that I think the GOP and media establishment don't get is that the way the Republican party is set up right now, sans any influential moderates, they're not going to put forth anyone with enough reach to hit the middle. Somehow, they're going to have to loosen some of their principles in the primary before they find "the guy." (ie. They need Charlie Crist, but they'll never elect him.)

.... NEXT!
