I think the woman is right. Huntsman would get independent voters and other dissatisfied with Obama's handling of domestic issues.

Ann McFeatters - Obama has most to fear from Huntsman

Published: November 28, 2011 12:00PM

If Jon Huntsman were the GOP presidential nominee, President Barack Obama probably would be moving back to Chicago in January 2013.

With the advantage from Republicans' perspective that he's not Obama, Huntsman appeals to many independents because he's not a tea partier. And, once again, independents will decide the election.

Like Mitt Romney, Huntsman is a successful businessman and a former governor.

Like Newt Gingrich, Huntsman has been out of the country, although while Gingrich favors cruises around the Greek isles, Huntsman has lived abroad.

Like Rick Perry and Herman Cain, Huntsman has a sense of humor although he hasn't been as humorously gaffe prone.

Like Michele Bachmann, Huntsman loves children. Bachmann has five of her own and hosted 23 foster children, and Huntsman has seven children, including one adopted from China and one from India.

Like Ron Paul, Huntsman is worried about the United States getting into war after war after war.

Like Rick Santorum, well, no, Huntsman is a conservative but nowhere near that dogmatic.

Huntsman not only speaks Mandarin Chinese but Taiwanese Hokkein, learned as a young Mormon missionary. He was ambassador to Singapore, and U.S. trade ambassador under President George W. Bush. As Obama's former ambassador to China, Huntsman understands China's importance.
