  •  Democrats would do the same for that reason (7+ / 0-)

    if given a choice between a candidate who's a solid Democratic vote and has a sleazy personal life, and a solid Republican/conservative who has absolutely no skeletons in the closet, I suspect that the vast majority of people here, for example, would vote for the Democrat.  

    I think it's more prevalent at the national level than the local level, but it's still kind of an unfortunate development in our political process.  

    The best chance Colbert-Bush has is if she can make Republicans dislike Sanford so much that they stay home, even if that means a Democrat winning.  Unfortunately for her, most Republicans in places like that are far more repulsed by the policies of Democrats like Rep. Pelosi than they are about Mark Sanford's personal life.  

    It will be interesting to watch, I think.
