Just ignore Gov. Mark Sanford and ex-wife Jenny (who divorced in March). The person countless journos were talking about last night was CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby, who, if you look carefully, appears between the once wed couple.
Hamby looks to be in a state of mild shock over the Sanfords greeting each other (or else the shock was being so close to the famed marital train wreck). The event was a party for South Carolina gubernatorial victor Nikki Haley supporters.
Hamby’s one-word response? “Wow,” he wrote over Twitter.
Real Clear Politics’ White House Reporter Mike Memoli remarked: “He’s bordering on stalking.” And Politico‘s Jonathan Martin weighed in, saying, “There for history.”
> Update: Hamby has changed his Facebook picture to reflect the events of Tuesday night. Take a look.
