Weiner Should Spend More Time With His Family

*The Atlantic*'s Joshua Green [sees Weiner's future in TV](http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2011/06/weiner-steps-down/24...?), "battling conservatives on cable shout shows, only this time as a host rather than guest."

He just might be right, because, really, what else is Weiner going to do? He's spent his entire career working in politics; unlike Eliot Spitzer, who ended up in TV anyway, he doesn't have a quiet law office to retreat to. And because there is such a demand from cable TV networks for politicians to go on air and spout off, Weiner has been training for a TV news job. And TV does have an allure for someone who likes to be looked at.

There's another clear career choice that Weiner could make right now, though: with a baby on the way, he could choose to be a stay-at-home dad, at least for those first few, very demanding years of child care. His wife certainly has enough on her plate. He's spared us so far the "I'd like to spend more time with my family" line, but in his case, it's actually a good option.
