Should I take that to mean you aren’t impressed with Huntsman?

Huntsman strikes me as the consummate politician. He looks and speaks the part. I’ve actually found him to be more likeable than I expected him to be in the debates. I haven’t figured out why he’s so far behind, since he’s really not that much different than Romney overall and it sounds like he had a better track record as governor (granted, he’s from a more conservative state). As with most candidates, sometimes the key is to see who else likes him. In a recent interview with Bill O’Reilly Bill Clinton said he liked Huntsman. That may be his biggest disqualifier yet.
