    I asked if he/she knew why the law is what it is so a person would lose their job, license, or be disbarred for engaging in sexual relations with a subordinate, patient, student, or client.

    Do you know why there is that law?

    I know exactly what you are refering to.

    Are you saying you don't know the reason for this?

    He demonstrated that he can not be trusted, that his solemn oath means nothing.

    We should remove our faith in his ability to execute the duties of his office and remove him.

    Hmmm, so if you can get thrown out of your job, get your liscense revoked, or get disbarred, there is probably a contract of some sort saying you cannot do it, so I covered that.

That said, in that case, regardless of whether the investigation was just or not a law, a felony, was broken so I'd hope there was consistency there in redress's view on Clinton upon breaking a law.
    I cannot control peoples moral choices, and I don't believe in forcing people into generalities. Would I is a far different question than should people be allowed to.

    I think you know my view on politicians and the law. I think party politics should not be a factor, and if you break the law, you should be tried, convicted and punished, no matter what party or political philosophy you are.

    Side not on that: I find it interesting how conservatives love to bring up Clinton, and yet today, with the accusation made by Ridge that Bush used Homeland Security to manipulate an election result, conservatives seem to have a kinda "meh" attitude, and yet this is much more serious(practically if not legally) than anything Clinton did.

    1) Professors sleeping with their students:

    I think it's morally bankrupt, and possibly a conflict of interest, but not worthy of of any type of mass investigation. An ombudsman can handle this.


    2) Bosses sleeping with their subordinates:

    A possible a conflict of interest, which can happen quite a bit in the workplace (ass kissers can get away with lot too). Is it wrong? Possibly, but not worthy of a mass investigation and litigation.

    3) doctors sleeping with their patients:

    Not sure in the US, but it's against the law here. The doctor would most likely lose his/her license.

    4) lawyers diddling their clients:

    I bet this happens lots, and I see nothing wrong with it if both are consenting.

    What Clinton did was morally bankrupt, but it was nothing that broke any law. A multi-million dollar witch hunt was not necessary and did absolutely nothing but disrupt his Presidency.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Agreed.

    Actually he did not do anything wrong at all if one accepts cheating on wife with the wife of best friend who he also betrayed but hell he got his parents to payy of the husband of the cheating wife in a sorted 'sort of' Indecent Proposal !!!
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr
