"No I mean what I’ve said is consistently anything in life can happen. It is absolutely not my intent, not my goal and not my aim," Gov. Sanford said. "All these people who make these grand plans are very much confused about the way life really works," he added.
They also discussed Sanford's take on the stimulus funds — and whether the governor had turned down stimulus money as a way to raise his public profile.
"This is not the kind of thing that builds or garners public favor," he said. "I mean it’s an unpopular decision but it’s one that I think is right. And its one that I think is very much consistent with the way that I’ve voted and governed over the last 16 years in my time in politics. So I’d really reverse it which is to say in many ways if I were doing something opposite I would indeed be doing something political, because it would be completely out of character."
