Too Early For Weiner's Rise?

We'd like to think that, for the most part, we're equal opportunity critics of pols from both political parties (even though the Rethugs have an unfair numerical advantage in misbehavior).  Now, though, we have a Dem who was caught doing something creepy and inappropriate a couple of years ago mulling a re-entry into politics:  former New York Rep. Anthony "My Name Is My Fame" Weiner. Weiner is considering a run for mayor of New York City, part of which he represented before he resigned after sending inappropriate photos of himself and his "little Weiner" to various females.

Weiner was a charismatic and fiery progressive whom we admired for his ability to shoot down right-wing nonsense.  He was a favorite of this blog, and we're all for his future success. But maybe it's a little early to jump back into politics, especially since the Dem candidate field is crowded and his poll numbers are not high.  For what it's worth, we'd like to see him take a longer break, chill with his family (his wife is Huma Abedin -- enough said), and rejoin the political battles once his name itself isn't ironically associated with his past behavior.
