Jon Huntsman was appointed Ambassador to China by Barack Obama. Yes, Huntsman is a Republican, a devout family man, the son of a billionaire, and a "true" Christian.
The GOP have largely ignored Huntsman, mainly because he is a True Blood. Yes, he is a Mormon, but his devotion is to the interests of family, world stability, the United States and, yes, he is a True follower of the Real Christ.
Odd, much fun has been made of the Mormon White Horse Prophecy, but if it is indeed true, Huntsman is the one.
