We're taking questions on the jobs picture with an all-star panel in the 11am..

Jon Huntsman scored a big endorsement today.. the Boston Globe says Huntsman the best of the GOP field. Remember he's been focusing his campaign on New Hampshire in the hopes of scoring an upset. He's in Concord, NH today.

Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum also in NH. Mitt Romney in South Carolina.
