Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was on Meet the Press today, and when the topic of his 2008 running mate Sarah Palin's resignation as Alaska governor came up. McCain defended Palin, and claimed that she didn't quit. He said, "Oh, I don't think she quit. I think she changed her priorities." He also said that Palin didn't break a promise to her supporters by resigning.
Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mitt Romney all appeared on Sunday morning talk shows, and all said that disgraced South Carolina governor should not resign. The Republicans all claimed that Sanford has a personal problem, and completely ignored the fact that Sanford abandoned his post as governor.
