This final note today, in which we pose this question: Who ran for president this year in the GOP primaries and is the only politician on the AARP's list of the year's Sexiest Men over 50?

I'll give you a second, 'cause, you know -- Ron Paul is kinda charming. Rick Perry does have a certain something. And there's Newt if you like the cerebral type.

No, Jon Huntsman made the grade. He joins George Clooney, Denzel Washington and Yo-Yo Ma on the list, even though he did say he'd vote to cut retiree benefits.
