Sanford mum on whether he'll watch Jenny's first interview

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Mark and Jenny Sanford have been living apart since he revealed an affair last summer."](CNN) - Will South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford be watching Wednesday night when his wife Jenny sits down with Barbara Walters in her first television interview since her husband admitted to an extramarital affair in June?

The governor isn't saying.

Speaking to reporters in Charleston shortly after a House panel rejected an impeachment measure against him, the Republican was asked his thoughts on Jenny's TV appearance. He chose his words carefully.

"She has been real grace under fire," he said of his wife. "And I think she has made a lot people in this state and this country quite proud."

Pressed on whether he plans to watch, Sanford grinned.

"You will never know," he answered.

    He probably has to ask permission from "The Family" at the C-Street compound (cult?).

    I looked at the interview . Now I know why Sanford cheated on her. She looks like she's about 60 years old. and boring . Still does not make what he did right. Thank goodness she refused to stand at his side when he affair was exposed.
