In light of the hullabaloo over Jon Huntsman’s comment that Michele Bachmann made for “good photography,” New York’s John Heilmann releases more of the conversation he had with Huntsman about Bachmann:
JHEIL: What do you think of Michele Bachmann as a potential nominee?
JHUNT: I think it’s too hypothetical. I don’t think she gets the nomination. I think it’s impossible for her to get the nomination. I don’t think she’s gonna be able to bring the numbers together within the Republican tent to get the nomination. She’s off in one corner of the party. I think she’s excited that corner of the party. There are some elements that the media find appealing.
JHUNT: Irresistible. And why not? She makes for good copy. And good photography. So why not take it for all you can get? But I think that’s way too speculative.
