Don't Cry For Me, Mark Sanford

Will be Twittering the Mark Sanford press conference at 2 PM Eastern. In the mean time, interesting reading can be done here on the Politics Channel and by my colleagues at Talkingpointsmemo.com who are using theiir crowdsourcing to solicit interesting reader comments on why it's suspect you would want to drive the Argentine coast this time of year.

Kind of wondering when we'll get reaction from the likes of Jim DeMint, Lindsey Graham and Sanford's pal, John McCain. Sanford was a McCain 2000 supporter and the two have long been close. Plus Sanford is still chair of the Republican Governors Association. Is there going to be any rumbling there to dislodge him? And if so, why? Of course, will be wondering whether Mrs. Sanford is by his side at the press conference.
