Um, maybe not

U.S. Senator John Ensign (R-Nevada), the guy who came to Iowa at the beginning of the month and fueled all sorts of speculation about his presidential aspirations, has admitted to having an affair.  Chris Cilizza at The Washington Post has details of what transpired yesterday.

Todd Dorman of The Cedar Rapids Gazette had a blog post with some links yesterday, too. Today,in a post titled "Why?" Dorman offers this as point number 4. Why would a U.S.senator toting the baggage of an undisclosed (now very disclosed) affair bother making a presidential toe-dipping trip to Iowa? Maybe he thought what happens in the office of a senator who represents Vegas stays in the office of a senator who represents Vegas.

Ensign is head of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. Ben Smith at The Politico has some perspective on yesterday's timing
