Jon Huntsman, ex-Republican Gov. of Utah, ex-US ambassador to China (under Obama!), is the GOP's "coolest candidate" for President, claims Bloomberg's Jonathan Alter. He's pushing Utah's healthcare plan as an alternative to the one GOP hopeful (and fellow Mormon) Mitt Romney started in Massachusetts.
If the name's familiar in Philly, Huntsman is the son of (and a past executive at) the chemical company magnate who endowed Wharton's graduate business school out at the University of Pennsylvania on 38th St.
