SALT LAKE CITY A story published Thursday by the Associated Press named Jon Huntsman Jr. as a possible pick to replace Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State, but the former ambassador and governor has stayed tight-lipped about the possibility.
In an interview with KSL, Huntsman spoke about the need to put the "country first" with a tough presidential campaign now over. He spoke about his own plans in very general terms, sidestepping a question about what's next in his future plans.

But we’ll still have pundits telling us that Huntsman should be nominated in 2016 because he’s electable.
Nah, too liberal.
He’s a no labels scumbag who wants to get rid of these pesky political party names.
Maybe they should try him out as ambassador to Libya to see if he is tough enough for the job of SOS. If he lives a year he gets the job, otherwise a very nice high profile funeral with a complete coverup and high praises from low class places and people.
Shrug. at least it’s a step up. I’ll take a Huntsman Sec. of State over a Hillary one any day.
beautiful daughters, very smart man but a snake in the grass.
I already doubt Huntsman will be it. Obama likes to silence some opponents, but I don’t think Huntsman constitutes the same kind of former opponent to Obama that Hillary Clinton was.
Too liberal for Obama ? Are you serious ? Huntsman is the only candidate that could have beaten him, actually.
This is just a slap in Romney’s face.
He should nominate Lurch...
We could have popcorn parties at least once a week....
....maybe every day!!!
I’ve read that Kerry won’t get it because they’re afraid Scott Brown will run for that seat and win it. How wild would that be.
Kerry is too power hungry to give up SoS just to keep his Senate seat in the D column. He may be power hungry enough to realize that if he takes SoS, he’s effectively retired in four years though.
Coupe Deval Patrick
huntsturd would have gotten 2 votes. One was yours.
What are you smoking ? He is a total fraud.
John Huntsman. The white Colin Powell.
That will certainly upset John F. Kerry who served in Vietnam.
No, the skinny Chris Christie. Chris Christie is the white Colin Powell.
Funny you should mention Colon Powell.
Seems like he's been auditioning of late.
In whay universe? Huntsman was the second most liberal "republican" in the primaries. The most liberal got the nomination.
Three so called republicans in the primaries, had no chance at all against Obama, Romney, Huntsman and Paul.
I join you in thinking Lurch would be good for laughs. Can’t possibly do anymore damage in the world, could he?
However, I agree with the others who say he wouldn’t want to give up his “lifetime appt” Senate seat.
