This past weekend, the New York Times ran a short but insightful Q&A with former Gov. Mark Sanford. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I will offer you a little tease:

There were feelings that your old protégée Nikki Haley, the current governor of South Carolina, high-tailed away from you and embraced your wife, Jenny, who was far more popular.
What you learn to accept are the realities of politics and what people have to do or what they believe they have to do to stay in play. I think she would probably argue otherwise.

Yes, she would Mark. Yes, she would.
