I doubt that Jon Huntsman will be the GOP nominee for president. For one reason, he’s close to being sane. Not that he doesn’t have his moments, but he’s not drinking the same Tea Party brew as his opponents.
Unfortunately for Huntsman so far his centrist campaign has failed to gain any traction in today’s far right wing Republican Party which has become dominated by the extremist Tea Party.
It’s gotten to the point where the other Republican candidates are pledging allegiance to the Tea Party rather than the United States. They’re not running to be President of America; They’re running to be President of the Tea Party.
