Jon Hunstsman: The Solution to the Hunt for the Right Man

            In a heated race against unshakable, extremist right-wing politicians, Jon Huntsman, Jr. offered a refreshing dose of what this nation needs most: logic.

            Huntsman, unlike the other Republican contenders, holds more moderate—rational—standpoints on social issues, such as support for civil unions for gay couples, and belief in climate change and evolution. However, he stood by his conservative ideals through various fiscal proposals such his tax plan, which the Wall Street Journal deemed “the most pro-growth proposal ever offered by aU.S. presidential candidate.” After all, thePewCenter namedUtah the best-managed state and the number one in the nation in job creation under Huntsman’s governorship.

            Yes, Huntsman is no longer a candidate for this year’s presidential election, but he truly was our nation’s greatest chance for unity on all sides of the political spectrum. At the end of the day, there are too few moderate politicians left who are truly dedicated to work toward a goal of bipartisanship and unity.

            And also, he truly rocked the keyboards with the band on Letterman’s “Late Show” a few months ago. I’ll be two months shy of 18 when Nov. 6 comes along, but I’d sure vote for a guy who can serve as the nation’s Ambassador toChinaand still jam out.
