We're not totally sure what this is supposed to mean, and it's obviously wildly inaccurate anyway, but Jon Huntsman Sr. tells the Deseret News of his struggling son, "If he were running for president of China, he would have already won the election." Maybe it's just one of those "dad things" that dads say about their kids. "My son is the smartest kid in school," or "My son could win a presidential election in China" — same thing, basically.
