  •  She'll win because she can't hold seat in 2014 (6+ / 0-)

    ...many normally reliably GOP voters in SC-1 will be perfectly willing to stay home on election day or even vote for Colbert-Bush at the special election, because: a) they are confident the GOP can easily re-take the seat with a more suitable candidate in 2014; b) the temporary pick-up of one seat by the dems in the interim won't put any appreciable dent in solid GOP control of the house in the meantime.

    Shorter version: Enough normally reliable GOP voters will feel "safe" permitting Colbert-Bush to win the special election, in order to reject Sanford's efforts to revive his political career.  A price worth paying, on balance.
