What is new about bad behavior in politicians? Not much. We look at
the mayoral race in New York and shake our collective heads. I suppose even the arrogance of Mr. Weiner is not new. Of course there
is always some arrogance implicit in running for high profile public office.
Here is a man with a new baby, a glamorously successful wife, who needs to run into the other room with his cell phone and take pictures of what needn’t be shared. The therapists are having a field day! But is this what we need in a mayor?
Mr. Weiner says he doesn’t heed people who don’t vote in New York.
Alas, I have to hear about him everyday if I want to keep up with the
political world. I guess I don’t heed him either. A standoff.
Cities deserve the best of candidates for mayor. Cities are the glue
that hold this country together. We need to see the whole man, but
maybe not through images on a cell phone .
