Former ambassador to China and GOP presidential primary contender Jon Huntsman normally takes reasonable positions, but he has waffled on the question of global warming ("Gingrich has double-digit lead in new national poll," Dec. 7). Mr. Huntsman was quoted in The Sun as requesting the scientific community to state its position on whether humans have played a role in climate change more clearly. Mr. Huntsman should be aware that the National Academies of Sciences, the nation's spokesman for the scientific community, has unequivocally stated that global warming is in part man made and poses an serious threat to mankind.

Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, a Republican, spoke at Johns Hopkins University last week. He mostly avoided partisan politics, instead focusing on the roles of China and technology in determining America's future. However, he did address his failed presidential campaign, noting that his serving as ambassador to China under President Barack Obama hurt his standing with conservatives. To thunderous applause, Mr. Huntsman said (and I paraphrase), "No matter your party, when your president calls on you to serve, you do it. " This sentiment is anathema to many of our government officials today.

I too, sympathize with what Dovey Kahn wrote in The Sun on Sept. 6th ("Obama by default"). But, unlike Mr. Pasek ("Voting Republican for president, by default" Sept. 7) I cannot vote for any of the mainstream GOP candidates. Like Mr. Pasek, I believe in social equality, less government and balanced budgets. I also detest the wars in which we are often recklessly involved. But I also believe in science. The evidence for evolution and global warming is pervasive. If you can ignore the evidence in one area, what will stop you from confirming your biases in other areas, when the evidence is equally prevalent?

That pop you may or may not have heard the other day was the bursting pipedream of a centrist presidential candidate outside the establishment parties. The organizers of a group calling itself Americans Elect decided to close shop after failing to find anyone who would qualify to be its standard-bearer in November. No one who met the group's eligibility requirements to become its presidential nominee was able to corral the threshold 10,000 endorsements needed from "delegates" in an online nationwide convention.

In Iowan Meredith Willson's "The Music Man," Marian, the River City librarian, spends a lot of time looking for love, while pretending not to. In the end she does, in fact, find it, with a huckster - a man who may be slightly less than sincere. We naturally, and naively, assume it all works out for her, that her choice was sound, that her life will be perfect. A variation on a similar theme plays out quadrennially here in Iowa, where we have the enviable task of being the first in the nation to express our preferences for presidential candidates.

Those weird Motocross ads must be working.  GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman yesterday picked up what must be a coveted endorsement among bike riders: The approval of Annapolis native (and extreme biking king) Travis Pastrana. Pastrana is the only human being on earth who can do a double backflip on a bike, and he's usually not political. But he decided to ride into the political mud for his friend and fellow rider Huntsman.  Here's how @travispastrana endorsed @jonhuntsman on Twitter:   "Not one 4 politics, but  @ JonHuntsman , fellow MX rider, good friend of  @ NitroCircus  &smartest man I know, is running 4 President.

GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's campaign wants you to know that he is a Motocross rider in his spare time "to relax" -- and that he is apparently very, very cool.  No surprise, this ad comes from Fred Davis, who made Christine O'Donnell's famous "I am not a witch" ad and Carly Fiorina's "Demon sheep" ad. (Which are, incidentally, my two favorite ads of the last campaign cycle.)  A previous Davis ad for Huntsman (President Obama's former ambassador to China) also mentioned his former rock band, "Wizard.

Voters who are weary of endless war may have no choice at the presidential level next November. This is a very large group to be denied a vote on a key issue. A CNN/ORC poll released in November found that 68 percent of Americans opposed the war in Iraq and 63 percent are against the one in Afghanistan. Yet, we keep hearing that only hawks have a chance to be elected president. Or, in the case of Barack Obama, reelected. Although President Obama has withdrawn U.S. troops from Iraq, the war in Afghanistan grinds on. Mr. Obama expanded the drone warfare that has killed many civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Before he reinvented government, Al Gore revolutionized the way vice presidents are made. When he joined Bill Clinton's ticket, it violated the old rules. Regional diversity? Not with two Southerners from neighboring states. Ideological balance? A couple of left-of-center moderates. Age? Both younger than Barack Obama is today. And yet, Gore has come to be regarded by strategists in both parties as the best vice presidential pick in at least 20 years. "Everything about that ticket communicated change," say Michael Feldman, who worked in the campaign and became a senior Gore aide.
