During an exclusive to web interview with "This Week," Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of "The Nation," addressed the possibility of a New York City mayoral bid by Anthony Weiner, saying the former New York congressman, who resigned in 2011, needed a "few more years in the wilderness."

"There are a few very good candidates already running for mayor," she said.

"I think Anthony Weiner - I'm a believer in redemption and you know second chances but he needs a few more years in the wilderness in my mind to do that," she added.
