Huntsman for McCain?

Well at first I have to admit I was a little disappointed and surprised when it was announced today Utah Gov. Huntsman was joining the McCain team. Condsidering that his father is a large donor to Romney, and that he is the Governor of Utah were Romney knocked them dead with the olympics I wouldn't have guessed this.

But as I thought more about this, one probably couldn't send a bigger message to the world that the Romney campaign is not an LDS campaign. Also, most mormons think for themselves.

In reality Huntsman's opinion would only mean something to those who live in Utah- so I am not really concerned that his position actually will steer people away from Romney. But it does say a one thing about Romney: The arguments that he never could be elected in Utah because he is too liberal are kind of a joke now since the Republican Governor has backed McCain. Quoth the governor spokes person:

[McCain and Huntsman] share common viewpoints on many important issues, such as those impacting the western states and have similar viewpoints on international

So Utah, looks like if Utah's Governor could back McCain, then Utah could definitly back Romney. It will be interesting to see what Leavit does. But I have to admit, I am sure McCain is doing a little bit of grinning right now.
