Congressman Anthony Weiner is looking to rehab his image with the American politic and his wife, close Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. What better way to do it than steal a page out of the celebrity redemption playbook and enroll himself in "treatment" to make himself both a better person and a better husband. Will it work? Does rehab cleanse all sins?

Rehab is the celebrity equivalent of children being sent to their rooms. Through the redemptive process they are supposed to emerge properly chagrined. It is a time-out for bad behavior as well as a panacea for nearly every sin one can commit in Hollywood (and now, it seems, in Washington).
