If you’re aspiring for the top job in the country, it’s fair to say your connections to other people will be seriously vetted. As Hillary Clinton knows, almost anything can be turned into a liability by your political opponents.
That’s why Hillary has taken a pre-emptive strike against former Mayoral candidate and part-time Twitter exhibitionist Anthony Weiner. As Page Six reports, Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, a former adviser to Hillary, has brokered a deal to keep her husband out of public life for at least two years. Weiner has been doing some appearances on NY1′s “Inside City Hall,” but has limited his commentary to local politics. Sources say this has been done to “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton.”
A spokesperson for Clinton says the deal is “1,000 percent absurd,” but Hillary’s ties to Weiner are well known. Clinton, who has spent the better part of three decades in the public eye, is certainly used to damage control… especially involving the sexual dalliances of men.
Could this be the proof of Clinton’s intentions to run for President that America’s been waiting for? Or is Hillary really just focusing on her book tour?
