    Do a Google search. She has been hounded by the press for years.

Heck, she has shown that she is willing to use that very notoriety to aid in her getting jobs, why should it not also be expected to work against her in some places as well?

    That woman has made a ton of money off of her "poor choices", and is set up right now to make a heck of a lot more. I definitely do not feel bad for her.
    Made a ton of money? Prove it.

    Oh bull crap, she seeks the press out for the publicity. Cry me a river when you take her serious after appearing on Saturday Night Live.

    She is just cashing in on her fame.

    Well, on the comical side, a ton of pennies would be $3,628.74 if I did the math right.

    You think? Well here is what I think....it has taken her over a decade to overcome the shame and humiliation. Like she stated it is time to bury the blue dress. She made it perfectly clear it was a consensual relationship between her and Clinton and something she truly regrets. I believe this young woman at the time was overwhelmed by the press coverage and stigmatism that came with it. Now she is forty and it has probably taken all this time to get her head on straight after the brutal beating she received internationally. Cashing in on her fame? What fame? The thing that made her famous is the the thing she most regrets. That makes no sense. The only money she is cashing in is what she received for this article in Vanity Fair? Wow, so much for cashing in. duh.

    that happens to mostly nice guys, all the time.

    when are women going to start believing in equal work for equal pay.

    Your post is a non sequitur. Maggie posted that Clinton abused his power and that the relationship was unfair and scummy. She said nothing to do with equal pay for equal work, so I'm not sure why you tossed in this irrelevancy unless what you hoped to do was trivialize what was said or just to pitiably try to stir the pot.

    Ironically, it was during Clinton's admins that workplace sexual harassment laws were passed.

    Why should she have to change her name over a poor judgment in her youth? Because of folks like you? Hello?

    This woman has paid deeply for her poor choices. A young woman interning under the president of the U.S. somehow gets treated like trash while the great Billy is excused. Give it a rest.
    22-24 is well into adulthood. She already had a prolonged affair with a married man (before Clinton) by that time.

    What happened to the personal responsibility crowd. She was into her twenties. She was a college graduate. Boo hoo it played out internationally. She was old enough to know and she was hardly nave to Washington.

    nope; it is not a non sequitur. I am merely expanding on the line of reasoning presented.

    that happens to mostly nice guys, all the time. women "abuse" their "power" as well.

    Sexual harassment is repeated, unwanted advances. She has made it quite clear that the advances were far from unwanted. It wasn't sexual harassment; it was adultery, consensual on both sides.

    Don't get me wrong, Bill was an absolute pig for cheating on his wife and publicly humiliating her when the affair became known, despite the fact that he is hardly the only adulterer who has occupied the White House in the past century.
