Huntsman Out

The only 2012 Republican candidate for president who felt that the chief lesson to learn from Ronald Reagan was to be a principled moderate (gag!) and the only candidate who actually did work in the Obama Administration, Jon Huntsman, is going to announce he’s dropping out of the race today and endorsing Mitt Romney.

Not really a shocker that Huntsman’s constant “also-ran” doldrum poll status, lackluster style and campaign, connections to the regime, and weak-kneed moderate vibe didn’t help him catch fire.  I suppose being the only one still in the race who didn’t surge at some point also contributed to this move — everyone has had their moment in the sun except for Huntsman!

I’m not shocked.  I’m not upset.  I’m not even happy Huntsman’s calling it quits.  In fact, I feel the same thing today that I’ve always felt about him and his campaign, which is to say not much.

UPDATE:  It’s official.

At least the debates will be more watchable now, albeit with fewer opportunities for bathroom breaks.
