Steve Clemons -- foreign policy wonk, notorious DC name-dropper and author of "what I can confidently describe as the most self-absorbed blog post I've ever read" -- goes all out for GOP presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman in yesterday's Politico profile:
“I think Jon Huntsman is terrific,” he said in a recent email. “I do and have talked with him on many occasions. Last met him at his office in Beijing but looking forward to seeing him soon at his new home in Kalorama. He reminds me of Chuck Hagel — and I might support him if he runs. I think he’d make a great president.”
Chuck Hagel! Well, then. The GOP grassroots will surely swoon.
