    You're probably right, but not because he doesn't deserve it.

    Clinton lied under oath in a court of law in front of a federal judge. Not even politicians can get away with that.

    Perhaps I should have said they can't get away completely with a felony. He lost his law license, but that's pretty small potatoes compared to what us ordinary schlubs would get for that offense.

    Again, he shouldn't have had to but agreed he should've said nothing instead of lie in court. It is in my estimation a stale mate and more of a flaw in the legal system to allow it to get that far.

    Seriously, you don't think lying to a whole Nation of 300+ million is worse? I guess false promises are considered part of the game and not a bad thing.

    I don't disagree with that and I sure as hell don't blame them; I would use my position in the government to get laid, too--in a heartbeat

    However, the part that is fishy, is that powerful men usually do a better job of keeping it under wraps.
