RIP Idealism

So, John Huntsman is dropping out of the GOP race

This is a painful moment for me.  He was, without question, the BEST candidate out there for the GOP nomination.

Let's look at the key issues:

 Not willing to let Iran get a nuke

Keystone is only one of many steps needed, including alternative energy

He believes in breaking up the banks to prevent them from gaining too much power

He believes in evolution! And climate change!  Is it really so bad to believe in science?

Country above Politics

Simplify the tax code

His adopted daughters from India and China would make fantastic PR.  

Against the surveillance state and torture, and indefinite detention

This is a sad moment in American Politics.  Hopefully the empty suit's moderate side will come out soon.
