Cuomo: ‘Shame on us’ if New York elects Anthony Weiner

Just yesterday, all New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) had to say about Anthony Weiner's mayoral prospects was this:

But by the end of the day he'd changed his mind. "Shame on us" if New York City elects Weiner mayor, Cuomo told the The Post-Standard editorial board.

The governor is not planning to endorse in the mayor's race. “I’m going to try to stay out of the politics of New York City if I can avoid it,” he said in December.

Weiner announced his plans to run this week with a slick, subtly Mets-themed Web site. He kicked off his campaign Thursday morning at a subway stop in Harlem. But his past indiscretions won't necessarily stay in the past; he acknowledged in a radio interview that more women could come forward with photos and e-mails from him.

New Hampshire has voted. The Democrats debate on Thursday. Get caught up on the race.
The Post's Philip Rucker and Robert Costa say...
For Trump, the victory here was sweet vindication, showing that his atypical campaign could prevail largely on the power of celebrity and saturation media coverage. But there was also potential for concern in Tuesday's outcome. Trump faces doubts about his discipline as a candidate and whether he can build his support beyond the levels he has shown in the polls.
The Post's John Wagner and Anne Gearan say...
Hillary Clinton, who was declared the winner of the Iowa caucuses last week by the narrowest of margins, now finds herself struggling to right her once-formidable campaign against a self-described democratic socialist whom she has accused of selling pipe dreams to his supporters.
People have every right to be angry. But they're also hungry for solutions.
