“What have you learned about yourself over the past couple of years that makes you a different Anthony Weiner now than you were then?” Scott asked.
“Well, look, I’ve gone through substantial changes,” Weiner said. “You know, for the first time in 20-some odd years, I wasn’t in a position of government, had a chance to look at it from the outside as a consumer. I have a 17 month old at home. That changes your perspective in an awful hurry.”
