Gov. Sanford's Wife Breaks Tradition, Not Standing By Her Man........AMEN

To those accustomed to watching betrayed first ladies smile stiffly through their husbands' public confessions, the absence of Gov. Mark Sanford's wife at the soul-baring news conference where he admitted to an affair with a woman in Argentina was striking.
That came as no surprise to those who know this independently wealthy, Georgetown-educated, former Wall Street executive. Around South Carolina, Jenny Sanford is regarded as a strong-minded figure, accomplished and politically astute.

Instead, she issued a tough-minded statement saying she had thrown her cheating husband out and told him to stop speaking to her while she tries to deal with his infidelity.

I think this is awesome!! I always feel like its so fake to see those women up there smiling like idiots. Good for her! She absolutly SHOULD take her time to evaluate what happenned and she should NOT let his political future undermine HER! What do you think???

  • these were her words

    Mark Sanford said he wants to reconcile with his wife. His spokesman said he has no plans to resign. And Jenny Sanford said Wednesday the couple still has a shot regardless of what happens to her husband's political career.
    "I believe Mark has earned a chance to resurrect our marriage," she said.
