Dear Commons Community,
The Huffington Post has a brief piece on John Hunstman’s opinion of the Republican Presidential candidates. Speaking on Sunday about his own presidential candidacy, he commented that he was less than impressed by his fellow candidates when he attended his first debate in August.
“Is this the best we could do?” Huntsman said he asked himself.
He also joked that his wife forbade him to pander to the party’s far-right contingent ahead of Iowa’s caucuses, which likely hurt him with conservative voters in the Hawkeye State.
“She said if you pandered, if you sign any of those damn pledges, I’ll leave you,” Huntsman said. “So I had to say I believe in science — and people on stage look at you quizzically as though you’re … an oddball.”
