Jon Huntsman is pushing Pres. Obama for a faster U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. One commentator says Huntsman may be ahead of the curve on this one.
Robert Dreyfuss writes in The Nation:
Unlike kooks such as Ron Paul, Huntsman is a mainstream candidate, even if he doesn’t appeal well to the ideologues who dominate primaries. Still, it’s really important that this is hjappening inside the GOP. If the Republicans are smart, they’ll start calling it “Obama’s war,” and point out that President Bush didn’t bother to send many troops there.
