This scenario would've played out the same way in any Republican dominated district in the country. This mindset isn't unique to SC.
Same goes if the scenario was flipped and Sanford happened to be a Dem in any Dem district.
I agree...Marion Berry is a good example....Bill Clinton could be elected president tomorrow. I think this is a good thing, a sign that Americans are maturing and understand that people can be total screw ups in their personal loves but still sound professionals. Adultery is a pretty common occurrence...it is human nature and being monogamous for an entire lifetime is an un-natural constraint placed on man by society when women needed men for protection. Now that women openly compete with men in every aspect of life that convenient needs to be tossed and monogamy, for those who do not wish to play along, should not be a point of pride or shame as the case may be. That being said don't think for a minute that those of us on the left aren't gonna make hay while the sun shines....Sanford is a disgrace and proof positive that the whole GOP is a bunch of whore mongering troglodytes.....
