Jon Hunstman.

US Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman is mulling over a 2012 run for the GOP presidential nomination. Arguably one of the most talented man to serve in President George W. Bush's Administration (he was deputy US Trade Representative), Huntsman would be (if he runs) the second Mormon in the 2012 GOP field. (Mitt Romney is the other, obviously).

The biggest problem in American politics today is the talent deficit. Really smart, really able people don't want to get involved. When someone who is really smart and really able does get involved, it's welcome news. Huntsman for President would be very welcome news indeed.
