Political analysts Mark Shields and David Brooks chat with Hari Sreenivasan in the NewsHour newsroom.

Welcome back to the Doubleheader. You remember us? This is the space where talk about the sport of politics and politics of sport with syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks.

Today, we take a high level view of the Filner Files (see our friends at KPBS for excellent coverage of what is happening to the San Diego mayor), what’s happening in New York with Anthony Weiner’s campaign, and the Mets’ drubbing of the Washington Nationals.

Mark referenced a particularly moving image of former President George H.W. Bush in a classy act of solidarity with the Leukemia stricken son of one of his secret service agents. Here’s a nice shot of him with 2-year-old Patrick.

Have a great weekend.
