    The most obvious candidate to run to replace Anthony Weiner is his wife, Huma Abedin, the mature half of the couple.  

    She was long been connected to Hillary Clinton, former NY Senator, the Clintons could lock the nomination down for he, should she run.

    The complication of course is the pregnancy.  

    I seem to recall Cathy McMorris-Rodgers of Washington getting re-elected when pregnant.  She is the only pregnant woman I can recall running for Congress in the past however.

      I saw this post and initially said...uh, huh...yeah right.

      Then, started thinkin' about it.  Weiner is/was a very good representative (indiscretions aside).  I'm thinking his wife, if she stays with him, could and would be a very good replacement, and maybe electable to boot.  

      Crazy thought, I know..and you probably knew it when you posted it, but hey, crazier things have happened.  I mean, look...we've had actors as govenors and presidents and singers as congressmen and comedians  and...well, you get the point.
