President Bush has declared this as "National Character Counts Week." He celebrated character by appearing with Rep Don Sherwood (R-PA.) in a campaign stop.
Sherwood showed his own character by reaching a financial settlement with his mistress to end their long-time affair. He denies that he ever choked her. That's probably why Bush was able to appear with Sherwood. The whole "no-choking thing," I mean.
AQ Mathias has more character examples.
