The Russians say that watching a bitter battle between two unpleasant individuals is like watching two tarantulas fight inside a glass jar. That’s about the last metaphor I would have thought to use regarding Hillary Clinton and her protege Huma. But it came to mind when I read that the Clintons are livid at being compared to Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner.
As you might have guessed, it’s all about money…
Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.
Worried about the potential impact on Hillary’s likely run for president in 2016, the political power couple has begun aggressively distancing itself from the crippled mayoral contender, according to sources.
The Clintons, according to those same mysterious sources, want Weiner to drop out of the mayoral race to save them further embarrassment. As lazy summer news stories go, this is a good one.
