Appearing on CNN’s 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (video below), Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman was asked this hypothetical question by the host: “If Michele Bachmann continued to get real traction, and she came to you and said, look, you’re the other part of the party. Together we can create sweet music. Could you countenance such an idea?”

Huntsman replied, “You know, if you love this country, you serve this country. And so if you’re in a position to better the country, to bring whatever background you have to bear, whatever experiences to use in fine-tuning our future, I’ll be the first person to sign up, absolutely.”

But the candidate immediately ruled out being fellow Mormon Mitt Romney’s running mate. “There would be too many jokes about that. No, I can’t imagine it at all,” he said. Huntsman has served in several administrations, including President Obama's.
