Nation Washington Editor Chris Hayes talks with Rachel Maddow Show guest host Alison Stewart about the Republican presidential hopefuls for 2012. With South Carolina governor Mark Sanford continuing to make news by providing more and more information on his extramarital affair, and former Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin continually attacked as unready by former McCain campaign aides, who’s left standing? Could it be former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney? Hayes discusses the GOP’s “war of virtue” and how it’s knocking off presidential contenders one by one.
