Huntsman 2012 = McCain 2000?

Chris Cilliza’s post about former GOP governor Jon’s Huntsman’s inner circle gives some signals that he might be attempting a run.  As Cilliza notes, some of the persons that make up Huntman’s advisors reads like a repeat of John McCain’s 2000 campaign.

Of course, a potential strike against Huntsman is that he has served as Ambassador to China under President Obama.  This is a weakness that Huntsman would have to overcome in the primaries.

But it looks very likely that we might see a Huntsman campaign very soon.
