The acclaimed documentary "Weiner" shows Huma Abedin's complex love life is similar to that of her boss Hillary Clinton's, posing the question: Why did these women stay with their philandering husbands?

That's the opinion of Washington Post national political correspondent Karen Tumulty, who critiqued the film and what it says about Abedin, Clinton's top aide and wife of disgraced New York politician Anthony Weiner, whom it is about.

"Especially striking are the ways in which Abedin's own marriage follows the patterns of her boss', raising many of the same questions," Tumulty observes.

"Was it love or ambition that made her stay with a self-destructive politician who betrayed her again and again? Is her torment a testament to her character, or evidence that something is lacking in her judgment?"

Tumulty is referring to the train-wreck New York City mayoral campaign that Weiner staged in the midst of a sexting scandal that eventually sunk him as well as Bill Clinton's previous indiscretions that dogged his presidency.

The journalist calls it is "astonishing for Abedin to have allowed such a film as 'Weiner' to be made at all — much less to put a high-definition, close-up lens to the most humiliating chapter of her life."
