Smart Retreat

It strikes me that Anthony Weiner's decision to take a two-week leave of absence makes a lot of sense.
He's under enormous pressure to resign, from within his own party as well as from the Republican monkey cage.
Two weeks away from all that will give him time to catch his breath and mend some fences behind the scenes.
Too, in Washington, two weeks is an eternity and anything can happen that will distract people from him. Most notably, another scandal.
