    On the whole he did a reasonably good job as POTUS, and I'm uninterested in his private sexual adventures. Perjury committed by the Commander in Chief had an exceptionally corrosive effect on morale and discipline in the federal chain of command. It was a struggle to explain to younger officers why it was that their ultimate commander was someone who would have been judged unfit for service among them.

    I don't know anyone who cared about the sex, except to express disappointment that the C-in-C could not score a better-looking mistress. On the whole he did a reasonably good job as POTUS.

    Marrion Barry was what? 21 years ago? half the posters on this thread would have been... what? 4-5 years old? Some of guys are either showing just how old and decrepit you are or how irrelevant your historical facts are.

    Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat Tuesday in a district that hasn't elected a Democrat in three decades.

    The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote.

    too ****in funny to see this level of partisan blindness.
    Just like the ol' Mayor of DC Marion Barry, right?
