So, of course, he will not get elected or chosen to any office.

Not only would he make an effective Secretary of State, but also a great President.

His aspirations for a third party are well founded, as both of our present parties DO NOT represent America’s interests.

Democrats & Republicans are both cronies, sold out for reelection funding & pocket money, to special interests & to multinational corporations that have no loyalty to any country & no interest in the welfare of the people.

And this is the root cause of our present predicament with a dysfunctional congress & government.

The State department failed to deliver in Afghanistan after the military did its job. In Syria she will be remembered for failing to get Russia to work with the US in stopping the carnage.

Shortly thereafter, both David Axelrod and Jim Messina mentioned Huntsman as the Republican they had feared might be the nominee.
I’ve thought since then that Jon Huntsman would be the Sec. of State nominee.
He’d be excellent and it would really make the McCain-Graham hollering look even more foolish.

I agree with the suggestion of Jon Huntsman as the new potential Secretary of State. He is a knowledgeable, experienced politician and executive who has seen enormous success throughout his career.

However, I must say that his current position as a hardcore Republican is debatable. He announced in February that he thought the United States is going to have problems politically until a third party movement arises that can put forth new ideas. Moreover, he decided not to attend the Republican Convention for the first time since 1984, after the party reacted by denying his invitation to a Republican fundraising following his previous declaration.

More reasons to believe that Obama might want to appoint him as the new Secretary of State, except Huntsman might become a member of a soon-to-be-formed third party, which would challenge Obama’s promise.
