      That's a very long time ago, and the country was very different then.

        I confess I forgot him.

        I could see Weiner as various things. Governor, possibly Senator if someone decides to retire (that's doubtful to happen soon, though), maybe an Attorney General or Comptroller on the state level or Assistant Attorney General for Anti-Trust on the Federal level, but I can't see him as President. Then again, it was pretty unlikely Barack Obama could have won, yet he did. So who knows?

        But I think the next step for Weiner is to run for Mayor, and it's no foregone conclusion that he will win. I expect John Liu and several other people to run for that position (I think David Yassky would try again for a citywide position, because he's ambitious to the point of playing a little dirty). I supported Weiner for Mayor before, when he was barely edged out of a runoff with Mark Green, and I probably will again, but we shall have to wait and see what the outcome may be.
