The case for Jon Huntsman for the GOP presidential nomination

The name recognition of one Jon Hunstman is about zilch, but his qualifications are most impressive, even for conservatives. When Newt Gingrich flames out, as he eventually will, as the latest to surge in the polls for the GOP presidential nomination, there won't be many left in the field to turn to. Maybe that's when people will start taking Huntsman seriously.

One commentator who has is Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman. He lays out a case for Huntsman in this informative and well-reasoned piece.
