If you've wondered what's next for Gov. Mark Sanford's political ambitions now that his stimulus challenge has largely failed, then check out this piece by The Post and Courier's Robert Behre.

Read more stories on this subject in our stimulus package topic page.It's still too early to really know what's next, but Behre does a good job of summing up what's known and how people feel about the man.

Still even if we all hate the man now, if Obama's policies turn out to be a huge bust we might all turn to Sanford as the hero we wouldn't let ourselves listen to.

Still, there's been a lot of talk about how the ruling shows just how weak our executive branch is in South Carolina. It's something The State has dabbled about.

Meanwhile Robert Ariail has drawn a great cartoon about Sanford. It's titled "Don Quixote." Go take a look.

If you're wanting to get some raw reaction to the verdict from the political community, I suggest reading these comments on Brad Warthen's site.
