    I like Weiner's policy ideas and his feistiness.  But for me, the scandal was not about sex, it was about judgment and respect for his constituents - he knows that sex scandals cause people to lose their seats, and yet he went ahead and courted scandal.  That's a dangerous level of arrogance.  I don't care who or what he's carrying on with, but mayor of NYC is more important than most governorships - there's no room to, well, fuck around.

    But I don't really care for anyone else on that list either.  Quinn is milquetoast even by standards of milquetoast, and de Blasio has never really struck me as a serious leader.

    I'm no Clintonista but I find myself wishing that Bill would parachute into the race.  He's a scandal-magnet too but at least he's proven that he can run entities larger than lemonade stands.  Someone, I'll take anyone!
