In Today's Observer: Quinn, Weiner

In case you missed them, I had a couple of 2009-related pieces in today’s paper.

One of them looked at the implications of Christine Quinn’s friendly relations with the mayor for her possible mayoral bid. In the opinion of another Speaker who wanted to be mayor, Peter Vallone, Sr., “the more you keep your differences private, the better the city is.”.

And I talked to a busy Anthony Weiner, who is the only prospective mayoral candidate I know of whose campaign committee treasurer is a stand-up comedian.
