What irks me is that it's his wife who made Mark Sandford. Regardless how loveless or cold, that was the deal. He used her money, power, and influence to be politically viable. He willing sold his soul for power, and now he has to pay the piper. He can't have it both ways. Nothing is for free. If he wanted "love" he should have married that, not money to enhance his career. His side of the deal was not to f*ck up his career. Now they're both screwed.
