SC Gov. Sanford asks Democrat for Medicaid help

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is reaching across party lines to ask U.S. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn to find ways to shield the state from higher state Medicaid costs possible with new health care legislation. Sanford told Clyburn in a letter Thursday that he still opposes the legislation. But the Republican governor wants the Democratic congressman to use his leadership influence to get a better deal for taxpayers in South Carolina and other states.

This may seem like a sensible and reasonable thing for a governor to do. However, Sanford has been the opposite of such through his entire tenure. I don't care if it is to get a better deal or whatever.

I never expected him to reach out to anybody but C Street or Gawd for anything, much less a Democrat.

I have to go lie down. I am feeling light-headed.

2. Not for Sanford.
I don't care if he was charcoal. I never expected him to 'ask for help.' Those 3 words were anathema to him.

3. You'd be surprised how facile they are when unbound.
This is just legacy buffing.

5. You don't know Sanford
and what he has been up to. something must have dropped on his head.

He doesn't have a legacy to buff.
