    Any government leader or congressman whether if it's from United States, Malaysia or anywhere in the democratic world, should realized when they elected to represent by their voters and for their community, they should 'lead' by an example to carry out the responsibilities which he or she sworn. I agree Mr. Begala about having 'the right' to have a private life but not have 'the right' to lie to the public, the media and their own voters. Rep. Anthony Weiner should admitted 'earlier on' that he made a mistake in judgement on how he use a twitter during his own private time. As any human being, we all made mistake in judgement, but 'correcting our mistake' earlier on is making us endeavor to be a better person and a leader. Thanks Anderson and AC360 Team.

    I wish I still had the time to hit the gym and have pecks like that. These people need more work.

    I can't believe some of the comments I have heard some announcers make. "may need to seek therapy.." "may go a little bit far..." . First let me ask what law , if any, has he broken? It looks like none. If he wasn't being threatened by someone why did he even have to respond to the allegations? It is totally a private matter. Maybe he should be questioned about his favorite sexual position. Is there any difference? His opinion of his actions in this matter is just as valid as anyone else's. Maybe his wife knew. Maybe she sent pictures also. Maybe, maybe,maybe.... It is none of my business and I do not care to know. To pry in another's private life is to give up my own. I do not wish to do that and I highly respect others right to feel the same.
