How Mark Sanford Bounced Back

The New York Times runs a must-read profile on Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC).

"Sanford is just one of 435 members of the House of Representatives and, in his new role, a junior one at that. But he has managed something that few people have: returning to public office after an embarrassing, nationally televised -- Twitterized and blogged -- sex scandal. He was one in a succession of promising politicians who spontaneously combusted over the last few years."

"Sanford's successful reboot was at least in part due to the peculiarities of his congressional race. But it was also a result of a slow and sometimes painful dance with his would-be constituents and his colleagues, requiring tremendous political patience and a high threshold for public humiliation."
