A Liberal’s Idea of a Republican « Commentary Magazine
"Huntsman remains a liberal’s idea of a Republican. That is why he seems like a reasonable candidate to Bai. He’s a candidate whose campaign is geared to run against his own party and specifically not against Obama, whom he refuses to attack in his speeches. That means even in New Hampshire he can only appeal to basically liberal constituencies. The idea such a person could have a serious chance of winning the nomination of an overwhelmingly conservative party is absurd."
