Huntsman hitches his presidential campaign to falling star

There's always that 2 per cent that didn't get the word, the Marine Corps used to say. How else to explain Jon Huntsman, who enters the GOP predidential race today as the biggest Ryan budget backer in the field: Talking Points Memo:

The committed moderate and former Obama administration ambassador to China kicks off his campaign today, and according to previews, he plans to make strong support for Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) proposal to end Medicare as we know it a key component of his kick off speech. Huntsman was one of the first to wrap both hands around Ryan budget, telling ABC a couple weeks ago that he'd vote for the Medicare changes contained in it if he got the chance.

That at the same time a Florida Tea Partier is warning the GOP will lose if they stick with Ryan's plan, and polls show voters are set against the Ryan plan.
