Former Bush spokeswoman 'haunted' by Weiner images

Political history is full of prodigal sons, and after just two years in the wilderness, many voters in New York City appear ready to welcome former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner back into the political fold - as their mayor.

"I don't know how they're not haunted by the images that were associated with this story, which I still see," said former Bush spokeswoman Jennifer Millerwise Dyck. "I am haunted."

Jennifer Millerwise Dyck, now a senior director with consulting firm APCO, correspondent for The Huffington Post Ryan Grim, and CNN's chief political analyst Gloria Borger joined "The Lead" to discuss Weiner's comeback, and the bromance between President Barack Obama and Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

Christie is facing re-election this fall in Democratic-leaning New Jersey, a state Obama carried by 17 points last fall. Was there some political calculation at play in Obama's Tuesday tour of the Jersey Shore? Check out the video above to find out.
