    true, he didn't. and just as the public in general still has warm fuzzies for clinton, perhaps ensign's constituency will feel the same. after all, he repented, right?

    of course, i will argue that lying to your wife is comparable to lying under oath, at least about an affair. not illegal though. and paying off your mistress? well, i suppose some would say ensign is just a generous man........

    of course it's hypocritical. that's the very definition of hypocritical.......seeing things differently when you are in the same situation.

    i personally don't care what people do in their private lives, but the clinton era changed the rules.

    Except its not the same.

    Clinton: Had an affair on the job, in his work place, with a person who was a subordinant under him in his position as a government official, who was able to have the job due to the tax payers, and then lied about it under oath.

    Ensign: Had an affair with a woman a subordinant on his private staff under him as a person not as a public official, and did not lie to it under oath.

    You may find them both morally dispicable, but to say they're the same situation is absolutely incorrect.

    Rationalization....nothing more, nothing less.

    For Ensign to try to couch it in these terms just continues the hypocrisy that defines him.

    In terms of morality - absolutely. I find Clinton's personal morals to be on the level of a sewer rat.

    In terms of hypocrisy - no. Clinton didn't preach a "holier than thou" attitude.

    In terms of job performance - I find their personal sex life to be irrelevant completely in both cases.
