For Anthony Weiner, the calculation on running for New York mayor is simple its now or never. For Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, its complicated.
Weiner, the former congressman from Queens who left office amid scandal in 2011, is looking at a comeback this year. He has ties to two of New Yorks best-known political figures, neither of whom has spoken publicly about him running.
Weiners mayoral jousting will result in reminders to all that he came from Schumer and, by marrying Huma, is wed to the Clintons, something neither Clinton nor Schumer probably want etched forever into the collective public mind, said Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf, who is not attached to any of the mayoral candidates.

Weiner ties are uncomfortable for everyone.
Yeah—he should change his name to Prick-—it fits him so well.
(can you say that word on FR?)
Cry havoc and let slip the Weiner jokes!
Yeah... Well don't worry about any Republicans exploiting the awkwardness of the Democrat's situation. They want to be friends.
Weiner rises again...
Yeah, they never know when Tony is gonna whip it out and wave it!
Basil, you da man!
Problem! where weiner goes so goes the muslim brotherhood huma. Think about it!
And, people are bending over backwards to help him.
I know where he can get his campaign posters - his own photos!
The opposition will have a field day with those photos!
Hey, didn't they say Huma was pregnant when his photo news broke?
Any baby yet?
"Weiners mayoral jousting will result in reminders to all that he came from Schumer and, by marrying Huma, is wed to the Clintons, something neither Clinton nor Schumer probably want etched forever into the collective public mind, said Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf, who is not attached to any of the mayoral candidates.There are few choices; Upchuck and Slick might talk him out of running -- but if they don't, they'll have to publicly embrace each other. Schumer doesn't seem to enjoy human contact, but clearly the other two like it a little too much. My guess is, he'll run, they won't embrace him, and he'll lose in the primary -- but not by much.
The second coming of Weiner! Weiner rises again! Hillary to help Weiner get ERect... er... ELected! Weiner to Hillary and Schumer on his mayoral run: don't blow it!
"The Saudi-constructed,Brotherhood-conducted Islamist infrastructure in the West is on a missionthe 'Muslim Minority Affairs' mission. It seeks to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists,who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West.
Its goal is incrementally to infiltrate sharia principles in our law,our institutions,and our public policy.
Huma would become first lady of the state attacked on 9/11...symbolically sends message, especially given her fathers work on Muslim Minorities in the West
