Several years ago, I attended a debate at the Rose Wagner Theater between two class candidates for Utah governor, Jon Huntsman Jr. and Scott Matheson Jr. After the debate, I was elated at the civility and courtesy each showed their opponent. It was also obvious they were both very smart and knowledgeable.

When I think back to that debate, I hope former Ambassador Huntsman is the same as he enters the presidential Republican primary. I do believe his smarts and civility will make him the best candidate.
