    would we really be worse off in modern times, if it were socially acceptable for women to merely be honest and fornicate us into relationships as that moral of bearing True Witness.

    Is that a common practice?

    What was her job in the White House anyway?

The third choice isn't all that compelling, but I guess it is a possibility. Plus she wasn't the one who lied under oath! On the contrary, she seemed pretty candid and forthright about it at the time!

    Greetings, Lutherf.


    I have no problem either way with the timing.

    The fact this is not close to a crucial election leads one to suspect she is without such guile. I suggest that if she had had that kind of mean streak it would have surfaced a long time ago and had the possibility of being far more damaging, to herself and the Clintons.

    She was in her youth still and became a national figure in a sex scandal, has been the subject of ridicule, gossip and speculation, powerful political figures have attempted to disparage her character; read some of these posts from the eyes of her, her friends and family.

    That would leave scars on anyone. I know from first-hand experience communicating, often writing is a therapeutic thing; her infamy was world wide. I admire that kind of courage. i

    I don't think she has an agenda concerning the election. I think enough years have past, that she has gotten past the shame enough to cope, and that telling her story is part of her healing process.

A young woman infatuated by the most powerful man in the world making passes at her? What a friggin ass. Sure it was poor judgment on her part. Young and dumb and she consequently paid a huge price for it as it ended up haunting her the rest of her life while Billy boy got a pass. WTF?
    She probably made the first moves. She told people that she wanted to have sex with Clinton before she left for Washington. (remember 'presidential knee pads?). Women like sex also, especially with important men. We don't know that Bill and Hilary didn't have an arrangement that allowed him to do what he wanted, that's ois a matter that should be between them alone.

    The potential blackmail aspect brought up my Maggie is a good point and legitimate concern, but I don't think that means that special prosecutors should persecute every politician having illicit sex.

    but her bond to bill could be primarily a political one
    they are a power couple. not a romantic one ... at least from my very remote vantage
    they may well have an agreement that each can engage sexually with others, so long as their sexual escapades do not bring dishonor upon them (yea, bill screwed the pooch on that one, assuming his twenty something on the side was not going to tell her friends about what she was doing with the most powerful person in the world)

    and in that context, i do not see anything which would indicate hillary exhibits low self esteem

    Sure...I'll accept politically driven sociopath. It certainly explains her willingness to attack women that have had the misfortune to being victimized by others that she needs politically.

    Re: Monica Lewinsky Breaks her Silence

    For all those saying that what a President does in private should be between him and his wife and shouldn't have an impact on his job...

    Were you suggesting a similar view point towards what a CEO does in private? There were many that had no issue with people using the private actions of a CEO that they simply had a moral disagreement with (his support for gay marriage) as a means to pressure him out of a job.....what makes a a CEO accountable to his co-equal parts of the business and/or the stock holders, but magically a President is not accountable to his co-equal parts of the government and/or the ciitzen ranks who elect them? Why is the private life and actions of CEO's the publics business but the private life and actions of PUBLIC OFFICIALs seemingly not for some reason?
