Time Magazine has dubbed John Huntsman "The Potential Republican Presidential Candidate Democrats Most Fear." But we've been following him on Twitter and we think they should amend the headline to, "The Potential Republican Presidential Candidate Democrats Most Like, And Therefore Should Fear."
After being written off as the most non-compelling candidate in the Ames, Iowa debate poll, Huntsman took to Twitter a week later proclaiming his belief in evolution, zinging Rick Perry in the process. Hundreds of RTs and "WTF" responses later, and Huntsman may be a viable candidate -- at least as far as Twitter is concerned.
Sure, there's probably a staffer doing the tweeting for him, but clearly, Huntsman approves. In light of this new-found Twitter relevancy, we selected 10 Huntsman-related tweets that have the potential to win over liberals, and we explain why. Be afraid, Democrats. Be very afraid.
