Video Crew Following Huntsman in China

President Obama's China envoy -- and potential 2012 opponent -- Jon Huntsman has allowed a video crew to trail him as he has gone about his ambassadorial duties, Reuters reports in an extensive profile.

The story quotes a person familiar with the project as saying the filming is for a privately funded documentary about Huntsman but notes, "it would undoubtedly come in handy in any political campaign." Reuters also details Huntsman's work on behalf of human rights in China, including surprise visits to dissidents and personal postings on democracy activists' microblogs.

Huntsman, who served as Utah's Republican governor before Obama tapped him for the Beijing post, has announced he will step down April 30. Political supporters have already formed a political action committee that could serve as a springboard for a possible Huntsman White House run.
