Lanny Davis on Anthony Weiner's latest indiscretion: "Without Huma being next to him, it’d be a much different conversation"

On the heels of another revelation of lewd behavior by New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, tonight "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a collection of political insiders and media experts tasked with placing the latest developments into context.

Filling in for Piers Morgan, guest host Chris Cuomo asks crisis expert Lanny Davis for his assessment of Weiner's hastily assembled press conference:

"Without Huma being next to him, it’d be a much different conversation. This is a huge, huge, meaningful presence by Huma," says the special counsel to former President Bill Clinton and longtime friend of Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin. "There will be voters that might be turned off by this and I’m sure there are. And, they have a right to be. But, there are also people that will find sympathy in the two of them fighting through this.”

Kevin Madden meanwhile, an Executive Vice President of a public affairs firm, noted that the 48-year-old Democrats latest indiscretion has shifted the focus from political to personal:

"This is no longer a question about a campaign that’s really about ideas and issues that they care about," he says. "Right now, this is a campaign that’s in crisis and it’s a campaign that is about Anthony Weiner and his past. And I think that is his biggest challenge right now as a candidate."

Joining Cuomo in studio, Margaret Hoover echoed Davis early sentiments, placing an extreme amount of value on the presence of Weiner's seemingly supportive spouse:

“Everybody knows that Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal has not hurt him up till now. In fact, it may have propelled him into one of the top two seats," says the political commentator and media personality. "His sex scandal actually has helped him because everybody knows who he is. This notoriety may not hurt him and that’s what we have to see. That’s why Lanny's exactly right. We don’t know how this is going to play out. And, Huma being there today probably helped save the campaign.”

Watch the clip for more of Cuomo's discussion with his trio of analysts and experts, and tune in for the full edition of "Piers Morgan Live" at 9.

    My husband and i have been absolutely fortunate when Emmanuel could conclude his web research while using the ideas he acquired from your own blog. It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be offering strategies some others have been making money from. And we all keep in mind we need the writer to give thanks to for this. All the explanations you made, the easy web site navigation, the friendships your site make it easier to instill – it's got all spectacular, and it's letting our son and our family understand that content is interesting, and that's incredibly essential. Many thanks for the whole thing!

    Those are yours alright! . We at least need to get these people stealing images to start blogging! They probably just did a image search and grabbed them. They look good though!

    The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix should you werent too busy in search of attention.

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
