Obama Sends Potential Rival to China

In a move that can be seen as both bipartisan and highly political, President Obama has named Utah Governor Jon Huntsman (R) as the United States' new ambassador to China. Gov. Huntsman is seen as one of the most capable Republican governors in the country. He would have been a formidable dark horse candidate in a Republican Presidential primary come 2012. Now, he'll be working for Obama thousands of miles away from the snows of Iowa and New Hampshire. The governor has experience in the foreign service and is fluent in Mandarin.
