As Weinergate rages on, the HuffPo has managed to unearth a profile of TwitPic happy congressman Anthony Weiner when he was featured in a 1996 Cosmopolitan 101 Real Life Bachelors spread. Don't get too excited, the then 31-year old politician was fully-clad in a prepster Americana cardie and plaid blazer ensemble. (But perhaps he was sporting Jockeys underneath?) The headline of his profile: The Future President? Well....And as to what he likes to do in his off-hours? "I hate days off, but I guess I'd try on clothes I couldn't afford". Or not.
