Anthony Weiner, as featured in a 1996 issue of Cosmopolitan (Cosmopolitan)

In the wake of Weiner-gate, Cosmopolitan has dredged up this mini-profile, conducted back in 1996, when the then 31-year-old New York City councilman was chosen as one of the magazine’s “101 Gorgeous Real Life Bachelors.”

• His ideal woman? “Somebody smarter than me. I want to be sucked back into the throes of love — isn’t that what everybody really wants?”

• What’s he up to on his days off? “I hate days off but, I guess I’d try on clothes I couldn’t afford.”

• Cosmo called him “The Future President?”

Go here for the whole profile.
