    He will. The Boston Globe endorsement is evidence of a growing grassroots movement for Governor Huntsman. Here are some of the reasons why I think Governor Huntsman deserves a surge:

    1. Has the best jobs plan

    2. Would draw troops out of Afghanistan

    3. Would modernize education as we so desperately need

    4. Would impose Congressional term limits

    5. Would break up too big to fail banks

    What have you done today to make sure he gets elected?

    The New Hampshire primary is getting very close. There is quite a collection of candidates in the running. It's crucial that you make the correct selection. The old "Rethreads" like "Baggage" Newt Gingrich, "Flip-Flop" Mit Romney and "Dinosaur" Ron Paul should be disregarded, tossed on the "Used" tire heap and relegated to the annals of history. "Brain Freeze" Rick Perry would probably forget where he left the keys for the "Nuclear Button". Santorum is too far to the right for Mainstream America. The only smart and logical choice is John Huntsman. With all the hot spots in the world, we don't want a "Hawk" who would lead the country into war precipitously or a "Dove" who would settle for anything. Strong on the economy, jobs and international diplomacy, John Huntsman is the best and most qualified candidate for the republican nomination for the presidency of the United States of America.

    Expectations at this point are so low how can he not exceed them? But it's true – the Globe endorsement will help. Still, he needs to distinguish herself at the debates if there is to be any kind of hope.
