    But you fail to isolate anything.

    You realize the Irony of this?
    Go do some research on the backgrounds of our 44 presidents....
    1. I think it is unlikely at the current time.

    2. This time nothing. Next time....lets not wait to find out.

    3. When I create a space between each sentence or paragraph, thats the isolation, as shown above in the quoted region.

    4. Do you realize our current President wasn't a soldier. LOOK BEYOND THE WORDS. Do You Honestly Think I don't know which presidents have had military careers? Since the beginning we've had military POTUS's, and several such as Ike got elected for them.

    It is amazing to read calls for his resignation because he no longer is the stereotypical plastic politician. Damn, he's human. Can't have that. Everyone knows politicians must consist only of slogans and photo opt imagry.

    Clinton didn't have to resign. Many of them didn't HAVE to resign. They chose to. Stupidly IMO.

    I'd support a move to impeach the guy if he doesn't have the decency to step down.
    I would not support a move to impeach him.


    When is the next time this guy is going to have a "real person" moment?
    Did Clinton have a 'next time'?

    No, and if he did we didn't know about it, and weren't harmed by it.

    I think that is up to the people of South Carolina.
    However I don't believe there will be a next time. Now that it is all out there I would contend that he would tell everyone where he is going, leave a contact number, and go. I don't see him making that mistake again.
    When you are trying to hide cheating, your head isn't right. Now that all this weight is lifted off his shoulders, im certain he'll be much better off.

    So we were a military dictatorship in the past then?

    Sure he had to.

    He had a duty to serve the country, he rejected that option in favor of serving himself. Which is something one expects of a pig rapist.

    He was derelict in his duty.

    Yes.

    Marc Rich pardon, for one example for the nearly two years he continued to stain the office.

    Yes. He committed more crimes, and we do know about them and we were harmed by them.

    You're struck with this sudden surge of moral equivalency because....? Not to mention that you chose a wierd icon, since Clinton was the most corrupt president to ever occupy the White House.

    Well, I was a teenager at the time and I recall I went from living in a cracker jack box to living in a 3500sq foot home on 5 acres of land during that time. I can't imagine how we were hurt during his Presidency.

    Re: Should Sanford resign?

    Okay, so here's the thing.

    I hold people running for elected office to a higher standard than I hold my neighbors or anyone else.

    They're aspiring to a position of trust, and they damn well have to act trustworthy if they succeed in ascending to that position.

    If they prove they're not worthy of the trust thousands and often millions of people gave them to put them in that office, those thousands and millions have every right to expect that person to leave the office they've fouled.

    If we are completely unwilling to do something as insist public officials LIVE their lives to higher standards, how do we expect anything to improve in our elected officials and our government?

    So, you accept corruption at the highest national levels because you got a prize from a box of Crackerjacks.

    Wonderful.

    You've no objection to a president that rapes, so long as you moved up.

    Great.

    So you are critical of the personal lives of politicians.

    Thats fine.

    However you have to take into consideration that people's personal and professional lives don't always blend in together.

    I am a completely different person on the streets than I am in my house.

    Being in law enforcement I think I understand what can sometimes constitute a "rape". (80% of the rape cases I have investigated are bull**** drunken nights of later regret).

    I don't recall Clinton receiving a guilty verdict in any felony rape charges against him.
