Mr. Huntsman, you are a rising star in the GOP. And many people believe that you will run for President in the 2012 campaign. Who is going to take the credit for your job in China? You or the man who appointed you, President Obama?

Ambassador Huntsman:
Thank you for that treacherous last question. [Laughter]. Which I’m not even going to touch because I don’t do politics in this job. I serve my country first and foremost.
