NEW YORK (AP) -- He has what most politicians can only dream of: widespread name recognition, a hefty campaign account, and a buzzing media circus that follows his every move.
But for former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the question lingers - will it be enough for political redemption?
It's been more than a year since Weiner resigned in disgrace after tweeting lewd pictures of himself. Yet his marriage survived the scandal that made him a national joke; his wife, Huma Abedin, was pregnant at the time and gave birth to their first child in December.
His political prospects are less certain, though new questions have recently surfaced about whether he's considering a comeback by running for citywide office in 2013.

Mayor Weiner...anybody? How about it, Yanks?
Wiener pulled out.
Further proof that political power is a disease. Weiner makes a complete ass of himself, embarrasses his wife, family, constituents, Congress (if it can be embarrassed), and then one year later, he wants back in the limelight.
Term limits, with no re-election and a limit on total years in office. It wouldn’t keep all the Hot Dogs like this jackass out of office but it would help.
He really looks more like Squidward to me.
New Yorkers need a Weiner in Gracie Mansion!
The NYPost says Huma is either in DC or on the road with Hillary 80% of the time and Weenie is a stay-at-home dad.
Likely banging the nanny....
You’ll see the MSM start the rehab process for him, Spitzer, and John Edwards in 2013.
“I can’t help but wonder where Weiner’s been hiding.”
Make no mistake, Weiner will rise again, erect and proud.

Did I wake up in an alternative universe?
There used to be a clothing store in Houston owned by a local family named Weiner. My family shopped there and I could never understand why the people didn't change their name.
I know they have temporarily broken up, but there’s a slight chance that Rielle Hunter could be FLOTUS in 2017.
The MSM will have John-Boy looking like a choir boy by 2016, especially if Hillary isn’t running.
Hey Weenie, put a neck brace on
you're starting to droop a little.
He sure is living up to his name, and he looks like himself!
