    He placed his own interests first, and his job and family.....last.
    Our nation must learn to ignore "scandals".
    Its the quality of a man's achievements that are important.

    I have no problem with that except when a politician gets on a soap box about the sanctity of marriage and all that moral BS as a part of their platform like Sanford did.

    Clinton didn't resign -- why should Sanford?

    Sounds like he has great decision making skills then.

    Clinton didn't resign even though Sanford called for him too. So Sanford should do what he called for Clinton to do.

    But, Clinton payed the price anyway.... he was impeached for lieing to a grand jury.

    The possible misuse of funds.. I love it when I hear that one.

    Without any evidence of actual misuse of funds this argument doesn't have merit.

    DID Sanford call for Clinton to resign?

    And even if so -- didn't Clinton then set the precedent that resignation isnt necessary?

    The reason Sanford is being hypocritical is because he called for Clinton to resign for an affair, and now he won't when he was having an affair. He needs to leave the office, and pull his family back together, but that's up to him.
    I agree with you, but playing devil's advocate regarding the Clinton thing, it may be that now that he has committed a similar act, he doesn't see that what he did is worthy of resigning. Stated differently, he may see the error of his advice now that he has been in Clinton's shoes (doesn't think that an affair should impact his ability to govern). Maybe?

    Unquestionably, I think Sanford should resign. The AWOL incident is why--not the affair.

    Actually, why would the misuse of funds not have any valid evidence? Didn't Sanford tell the AP that he would be repaying the state for the funds used for the trips? Hmmm, thats odd I didn't know that there wasn't any evidence.
