In the last couple of days I’ve started and then not finished posts varying on the theme that Jon Huntsman will not be the GOP nominee in 2012. He just won’t. There is no rationale for his candidacy as anything but Obama-lite with shades of Schwarzenegger redux. He will not rally the base. But hey, who am I to argue with those conservative stalwarts at Time magazine and E.J. Dionne at MSNBC?
