Exchange on ABC News tonight regarding Mark Sanford (video link):

CHARLIE GIBSON: ... We've had a lot of governors and senators with these kinds of problems, personal indiscretions. Governors: Spitzer, McGreevey, Blagojevich of Illinois, and now Sanford. Senators: Craig, Vitter, and Ensign. There's a lot of 'em.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Boy, there sure are, but one remarkable fact, Charlie: you look at that breakdown, on the Democratic side, Spitzer, McGreevey, you add the Detroit mayor, Kilpatrick -- all of the politicians were forced out of office. Every one of the Republicans you just mentioned held on.

True. Funny how that's worked out post-Clinton.
