    In other words, it's irrelevant.

    Or it was about money and not any actual guilt. You can't make these judgements without a solid case. A settlement alone does not speak to guilt.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    "Bimbo Eruptions." That's what Republication strategist Mary Matalin, during the 1992 presidential campaign, called allegations of extramarital affairs against candidate Bill Clinton. But, unfortunately for the president, Juanita Broaddrick is nobody's bimbo.

    In an NBC "Dateline" interview taped before but aired after the Senate impeachment vote, Broaddrick says that in 1978 then-Arkansas attorney general Bill Clinton raped her.
    Paula Jones, who alleged sexual assault, became instant fodder for late-night talk-show hosts, comedians and Clinton attack dogs. We all heard the cracks. Horse-face, big nose, trailer-park trash. Later, the president settles her dismissed case for $850,000. A lot of money from someone who claims he did nothing wrong.
    Kathleen Willey, on "60 Minutes," described an unwanted sexual advance. She claimed the president took his hand and placed it on her breast, and took her hand, placing it on his genitalia.
    Where there's smoke, it's not stupid to figure there's fire.

    Yes, it most assuredly does.

    No, it most assuredly does not. There are lots of reasons to settle that have nothing at all to do with guilt.

    I agree, when it comes to product liability cases. sometimes it is cheaper to settle. In Clinton's case it would've been cheaper to pay his lawyers to fight it than to pay Jones hush money...IF he was innocent. What's that old saying..."where there's smoke, there's fire". I could give Bill the benefit of the doubt if Jones was the only one saying Clinton assaulted/abused her. But that is not the case. Clinton has a long history of being accused of sexual misconduct. Do you seriously believe that ALL of these women are lying?

    Kathleen Willey
    Juanita Broaddrick
    Paula Jones
    Monica Lewinski
    Gennifer Flowers
    Elizabeth Ward Gracen

    the list goes on and on. Regardless of what you think of his politics....Bill Clinton is a scumbag with little or no respect for women.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I disagree. A public figure doesn't settle for $850K (without a confidentiality agreement, no less) unless he's guilty as sin. You just don't want to believe it.

    That all depends upon how much Jones' silence costs.

    Why on earth would any individual settle out of court for 850K if they weren't guilty?
