A Democratic source who spoke to Anthony Weiner after Democratic leaders called on him to resign Saturday told CNN that even with that public hammer dropped on him, Weiner made clear he was still "on the fence" about whether to step down.OK, so his wife is scheduled to return Wednesday? Well, she could be back sooner since something other than Anthony's shorts has erupted.
Democratic sources CNN has talked to since Saturday said that Weiner told Democrats pressuring him to go that he wanted to wait for his wife Huma to return from a trip with Hillary Clinton. This Democratic source told CNN that Weiner specifically said in their phone conversation that he needs to "look her in the eye" and discuss this before he makes any decision, because he has done enough to hurt her.
The same Democratic source said that Weiner was emotionally falling apart on the phone in this and other conversations and in a state of "despair." Other Democratic sources who talked to him late last week described him the same way. Another person who spoke to him on Saturday called Weiner's disposition "turbulent."
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is cutting short a three-nation tour of Africa due to a volcano eruption that has created an ash cloud over parts of East Africa.I question the timing.
Clinton was to have spent Monday night in Addis Ababa. But she will now leave the Ethiopian capital immediately because the ash cloud from the explosion in Eritrea is heading toward the city.
