    Do you care why the story came out in the first place? Do you care that the President (the same guy it turns out that was accused of raping a campaign staff worker and groping a White House employee on the day of her husbands funeral) actually committed perjury while on trial for yet another act of sexual misconduct...one in which he ultimately pled no contest to having a state trooper escort a campaign staff worker to his room to discuss the next days strategy and instead, she walked in on him with his sweatpants around his ankles flogging the donkey, then stood up and exposed himself to her and asked her to 'kiss it'?

    The whole ordeal was about so much more than a consensual act. And you may have noted...Monica actually takes RESPONSIBILITY for her role and choice in the relationship. Not Bill. Not Hillary.

    You are a crack up. Its going to be ****ing hilarious watching you and others digging the Hillary Clinton "War on Women" meme during the 2016 campaign.

    Ms Lewinsky is the only person in this story that has taken responsibility for her role in the affair.

    One classy thing Clinton did do, after keeping Yasser Arafat waiting while he played hide the Havana with Monica: "Sorry to keep you waiting,Yasser, would you like a cigar?"

    Forget google. When was the last time you heard anything her before she broke her silence?

    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.
    She was an intern 6 months into the job.
    Interns are Shepard by those they are assigned to
    She was assigned to the President.
    What a shepherd! He unzips and she fiddles with his midde while he bangs her with a cigar. Marvelous.
    Like I stated earlier, there are several things in Monica's life prior to her encounter with the Prez that can account for her lack of personal dignity. She came from a dysfunctional family for starters. But that doesn't excuse a 47 year old man taking advantage of a needy girl especially when he happens to be the President of the United States.

    why do we presume that the clintons did not have an understanding
    something like bill, get your rocks off with those who are interested in screwing/blowing you, just don't allow your relationships to become public knowledge, which would embarrass me

    bill and monica were consenting adults
    and in federal service, for some, they screw their way to the top
    maybe that was monica's approach, or maybe she just liked gratifying the world's most powerful person



    the two people i do feel sorry for are chelsea clinton and dr lewinsky. they had to have been massively embarrassed about their dad's/daughter's intimate sexual peccadillos becoming public knowledge


    and why now? why is monica again exposing her notoriety to a new generation; what purpose is being achieved?


    some demo insiders are saying hillary will launch her candidacy in september. a moment when her announcement could re-invigorate the demo voters to turn out for the 2014 elections. any chance monica's decision to get this before the public is tied to that timing of hillary's candidacy announcement?

    Re: Monica Lewinsky Breaks her Silence

    Was Clinton being an ass? Yes, he wasn't the first one to occupy that office and won't be the last. he acted like an ass, he shied away from responsibility, and in general was an ass.
    That being said, I have no idea why people are defending Monica Lewinsky. From what I've read she's made a ton of money from the scandal and instead of being a person who was truly emotionally affected by it, she sought out all the attention she could get. Did the international press hound her? Yes, and she enjoyed every minute and dollar of it. It was all consensual and highly unethical. All this crap about being "abused", "not being mentored", "taken advantage of" is just pure crap. She was 22 for God's sake, she had a five-year affair and therefore was not "innocent". She showed up in every TV show she could go to, she wrote a book, she had her own handbag line, and she made millions. No exactly the hurt victim .
    There's nobody to defend here. Clinton and Lewinsky were both asses who were stupid enough to get caught.

    Maggie, it is apparent that she had a multi-year long affair with a married man before Clinton entered the picture. Does that change your view of her?

    She seemed like more than a willing participant. And frankly her flirting included flashing flesh and thong to the POTUS. She knew exactly what she was doing.

    Not making Clinton out to be a victim either. Takes two to tango.

    In nursing school, one of my fellow students (over 21) played these games as well. Disgustingly enough. she clearly got takers from doctors that were twice her age. I was disgusted with her and the doctors that took her up on her flirtations. I never saw her as a weak woman....she knew exactly what she was doing. Some people laughed about it....I saw nothing funny about it.

    At 22 - she was a college graduate....well into adulthood, and well versed in having and affair with a married man.

    She can take up her dysfunctional family with her therapist. She is responsible for her own behavior. Hmmmm.....I come from a dysfunctional family. What can I get away with.

    This would all play VERY different if she was younger. But sorry 22-24 is old enough. And frankly she was already very experienced in how to handle affairs.

    Yup. CLinton was an asshole adulterer. Doesn't excuse her. In the least.
