U.S. ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, a Republican with potential presidential ambitions, has advised officials that he intends to leave the post during the first part of this year, the White House said Monday.

Huntsman, a former governor of Utah, was appointed ambassador by President Barack Obama in 2009. Huntsman's plans have generated considerable attention in political circles because his foreign policy experience could stand out in a crowded GOP field.

The early primaries will have a strong role for conservatives and tea party-style activists, and Huntsman could be criticized as a member of Obama's administration _ a charge even the president joked might be enough to stop Huntsman before he even starts.

"I'm sure that him having worked so well with me will be a great asset in any Republican primary," Obama said with laughter at the White House last month.

Huntsman's support for same-sex civil unions similarly may leave him viewed as too moderate for some conservative activists who demand orthodoxy.

Huntsman's allies suggest he would stay in Beijing through April, set up an exploratory committee and make an announcement in early summer, perhaps after the close of the second-quarter fundraising records are released in July. By then, Republican primary voters will have had a chance to assess the early entrants in the GOP field and may clamor for another option.

Jon Huntsman May Launch Pro-Life Republican Presidential Bid

“Former two-term Utah Governor Jon Huntsman has stepped down from his position as ambassador to China and may launch a bid for the Republican nomination to face the pro-abortion president for whom he currently is a diplomat.
Huntsman, who is pro-life and supported and signed into law parental consent requirement for abortion, is a Republican but is known for bucking the establishment and he did so when he accepted the nomination to become ambassador to the Asian nation. He did so in part because he learned to speak Mandarin while on Mormon mission to Taiwan during college.”

Go Huckabee/Huntsman Jr 2012!

If not my first choice of Huck/Kasich :) :D 8)

I think this is actually good for Huckabee (assuming he doesnt win...). He will help split the anti-Huckabee vote. Bad news for Romney, though.

This man accepted a post by BHO? I am sorry, but that is all I need to know about this potential candidate.

I am so glad Coach Dungy found better things to do than accept something from BHO.
