DescriptionI have to admit, the Huntsman candidacy for President never made much sense to me. When it began I thought: wait, this guy served in the Obama Administration and now wants to run against him? And I didn't really get any further than that. Maybe, though, it was simply Himalayan-sized political ambition. According to very credible sources, Huntsman has accepted a speaking slot at the Democrat convention in Charlotte next month.

At first, the idea seemed like something out of fiction. No, weirder than that, because even Aaron Sorkin couldn't come up with such a convoluted plot device. But, the information came to me from a very high-ranking Republican official who assured me the information came from "very credible sources."

If the information is accurate, it does provide a telling context for Jon Huntsman Sr.'s out-of-the-blue attack today on Mitt Romney's taxes and rumors that he is the "source" for Harry Reid's wild allegation over those taxes. And let's not forget that one of Huntsman's daughters recently announced that she would switch to the Democrat party.
