From the early days of the 2012 primary, influential liberals referred to Jon Hunstman, U.S. Ambassador to China, and Singapore before that, as “the sane Republican”. Huntsman’s foreign policy chops and statesmen-like manner were frequently cited during his brief run, often by the candidate himself.
The days leading up to the Palmetto state’s primary were a raucous affair with spirited television debates, candidates dropping out, major mud flinging and an inundation of attack ads. Now that the dust has settled, we’ll talk about who won, who lost, and how this contest shapes the rest of the republican Presidential race.
