It's end of the trail for Sanford and his mistress

Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina surprised the political world over the weekend with his announcement that he was ending his engagement to the woman with whom he had an extramarital affair, the revelation of which stunted his rising-star career five years ago. But in interviews last spring, Sanford and his fiancee, Maria Belen Chapur, indicated that a relationship born in a stew of infidelity, 21st century politics and Twitter-enhanced cable-news sensationalism had, perhaps inevitably, sustained damage.

RUDGLEY: Six years, not four

A one-term, six-year presidency would reinvigorate the broken, gridlocked American political system. This is not a new idea; in fact, the delegates of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 favored a one-term, seven-year executive tenure but decided against it largely for political reasons.

Editorial: Close revolving door in Washington, D.C.

The revolving door - hopping from a public position such as congressman to a private one that influences legislative action - isn't something that's new, but it's now back in the spotlight. Former U.S. Rep, Eric Cantor, R-Va., is the latest example after he failed to get re-elected this year and quickly found a high-salary job at an investment bank where his main job duties seem to largely be influencing public policy.
