Huma abedin dating
A friend of the couple said Weiner and the 32-year-old Abedin are something special.
"They're just two people that you would never imagine together but they're perfect together," said the friend, who asked not to be named.
His admission dredged up old reports that Weiner, 43, dated several beauties over the years, including ABC reporter Gigi Stone, New Yorker writer Rebecca Mead and AOL cybermodel Alli Joseph.
"Soon there will be pictures of me emerging from behind a tree," Weiner joked about his no-longer-private personal life.
"I'm certain that the relationship was not the product of a political calculation," he said.
Weiner quickly added that he remained a staunch critic of the Saudis and quipped, "Given how hard I've worked for Hillary, I think I might be ambassador to Saudi [Arabia] in the Obama administration." Then realizing the gaffe, Weiner corrected himself and predicted Clinton - who he has campaigned for - would win the nomination over Barack Obama.
"I'd like to talk about it as little additionally as possible," Weiner said during a meeting with the Daily News Editorial Board Wednesday.
It was a mild protest, delivered with a sheepish grin.
What does Clinton think of him romancing her right-hand woman? Nor would Weiner say what his Jewish mom thinks of his stunning sweetheart.
"It's not something I want to talk about," he said.
Anthony Weiner may be a lean, mean dating machine, but he's not real chatty about his hottie from Hillary Clinton's campaign.A day after the bachelor congressman finally admitted he was dating Clinton's "body woman" aide, Huma Abedin, Weiner was eager to talk about national security, his mayoral ambitions - anything but his love life.
