In an editorial yesterday, the Salt Lake Tribune pushed former Utah governor Jon Huntsman to run for president:
Huntsman should run.
It’s way too soon for any newspaper endorsements, but an official Huntsman for President campaign would be good for the Republican Party and for the country.
As people in Utah well know, and reporters and political pundits are starting to learn, Huntsman exudes a level-headed vibe and has a long history of political acts and statements that place him squarely in the center-right part of the political spectrum. Which, it just so happens, is where most of the American electorate finds its comfort zone.
