First there were those fawning handwritten love letters that Jon Huntsman sent to Obama. And then there was Jimmy Carter. In one fell swoop, Carter has doomed the mere potential of a Huntsman candidacy.
Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter has a favorite in the race for the Republican nomination for president.
In an interview printed Wednesday by CNN, Carter said that Jon Huntsman is “very attractive to me personally.”
If I were Jon Huntsman, I'd call Jimmy up and politely ask him to take it back at once. At the very least, Carter could "clarify" that he was solely commenting on Huntsman's physical attractiveness, and not his principles or agenda. On second thought, maybe Carter really was just commenting on Huntsman's charming smile:
Carter told CNN that despite his attraction to Huntsman, his “intention is to vote for the Democratic candidate.”
