Huntsman for Secretary of State?

White House officials suggest Jon Huntsman (R), the former Utah governor, Obama's ambassador to China and Republican presidential candidate, might be a candidate for Secretary of State, the AP reports.

"Huntsman is still widely respected by the administration even if he'd hoped to unseat Obama. Choosing Huntsman would allow the president to claim bipartisanship while putting an Asia expert in the job at a time when the U.S. is focusing more attention on the world's most populous continent."

KSL-TV: "The speculation caught many political observers off guard. Some told us that taking another job in the Obama administration might make it hard, if not impossible, for him to run as a Republican again for the White House."
