I would not bet on a victory for Anthony Weiner in the New York City mayoral election. However, I have an idea for alternate employment for him and his wife, Huma Abedin.
Mr. Weiner is Jewish. His wife is Muslim. His sexting has put more strain on their marriage than merely their religious difference. Since they are still together, apparently they are both extraordinarily skilled at conflict resolution as well as being experts on Facebook networking.
Huma Abedin works for Hillary Clinton. Some of you will recall that Ms. Clinton was, until recently, Secretary of State, a job which made her the boss of all American ambassadors to foreign embassies around the world, including Benghazi, Libya.
Huma grew up in Saudi Arabia, where her mother still lives. She must have knowledge and insights about the troubled Mid-East.
Anthony has, well, “people skills” and is very out-going, to a fault perhaps.
What a team! I suggest that they be sent to Syria as co-ambassadors. They can make friends with Assad and bring him around to the American Way. Maybe they could get him involved with Facebook friends as a way to get his mind off killing rebels AND maybe they could get the rebels in Syria to make friends with Assad through Facebook rather than direct military action.
