NYT Blog: Huntsman Out


Tom Van Dyke

Tom Van Dyke, businessman, musician, bon vivant and game-show champ (The Joker's Wild, and Win Ben Stein's Money), knows lots of stuff, although not quite everything yet. A past inactive to The American Spectator Online, the late great Reform Club blog, and currently on religion and the American Founding at American Creation, TVD continues to write on matters of both great and small importance from his ranch type style tract house high on a hill above Los Angeles.

    Do you think there’s a deal of some sort? A Romney-Huntsman ticket vs. Obama Hillary would be interesting, Hillary’d be the outlier there.Report

      It would amplify Romney’s Mormonism, so I doubt it’s even remotely under consideration. A cabinet appointment is possible.

      I would expect a more typical Republican at the bottom of the ticket. McDonnell, Thune, or someone along those lines.Report

      A note that it’s highly unlikely Obama will be punting Biden for Hillary. At least that’s the consensus among the liberal watercoolers. Hillary has a higher touch job with Sec. of State currently than she would have as VP. There is no defection or angst in the base or electorate that she would directly assuage and she has indicated repeatedly she’s done with electoral politics so the annointing a successor move would be redundant.Report

      Unless Romney’s president.Report

        I don’t know, what if Romney is nominated and then loses!? Will the GOP be eager to nominate his even more moderate clone next time around? Only way I see this working out for him is if some red meat conservative got the nod and did a Mondale.Report
