    Then similarly, it should've been reasonable for people to have called Clinton's judgement into question. He had to know if it got out that he was cheating on his wife, in the oval office, with a subordinate that it would be problematic. Politics play a large part in the job of a CEO, it definitely does with a President.

    Then again, in both cases, it seemed many of those that had issues were more because of being offended by the action as opposed to having worries about judgement.

    But I guess that's kind of my point. I have no problem if someone wants to say that the PRIVATE action of a CEO is reasonable to take into account as to whether or not a company should want to keep him employed or should exert all pressure possible to get him removed/to resign. But if you're someone that feels that way, then turning around and going "What happened with Clinton and Monica was private and should be between him and Hillary alone" is just mind bogglingly ridiculous and clearly transparent.

    And vise versa.

    Fair enough.


    Look at the people the press tries to humiliate or that the media makes fun of...Christie and his weight, Hillary on SNL, Sarah Palin on SNL, etc.
    Nah. Everyone is fair game. One could claim the media making fun of Obama is racist just the same.

It is said the White House staff had her transferred to the Pentagon when they noticed how much time she and Clinton were spending together.
    Thanks Vesper for clearing that up.

    It still seems weird for a 22 year old to be able to spend that much time with the President.

    I'm not a big Hillary fan but she is a woman and any married woman deserves to be pissed at the 'other woman' if that other woman KNOWS she's messing with a married man. I realize Monica probably was overwhelmed by his power and influence and made an immature mistake but I still believe it's wrong...and she knew it...to get involved with a married man.

    So I totally get a woman calling out someone cheating with her husband. I actually would have respected her more...and any of these other political wives in the same position...if she had been more honest about it instead of sucking it up and 'standing by her man.'

    (by no means am I excusing Bill at all, just not addressing him here).

    I hope she makes a fortune off of it.

    Consensual 'sex acts' in the Oval Office with the President of the United States when you are a 22 year old intern?

    Riiiight...I am sure she felt 100% certain she could say 'no' with zero negative ramifications...NOT.

    I am not saying she was not all for it (I don't know)...but don't tell me it was an atmosphere that allowed her to feel free to say 'no'.

    The guy is a coward (for this and other things) and a loser and I hope she makes piles of dough off of this...and I could care less what her motives are.

    I agree. But the problem is the religious nut jobs on the right got a flaming woody for the wrong reason. If they would have been a little smarter they could have easily made it a national security issue instead of trying to prosecute morality. Clinton's affair put him in the position of being bribed. Big no no in my book.

    Again, the rest of the affair stuff is between him and Hillary.

    Obama's done it too, most recently about the Obamacare mess.

    I agree tho, everyone is fair game but that wasnt a point I was trying to make.

    Her history suggests that she was a willing participant, as do her own words.

    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.
    You do realize I can't stand Hillary? Or do you assume because I am a lefty I'll blindly follow her?

    I could care less if she begged him on her knees to let her blow him...the guy is a loser for doing it and a coward for trying to cover it up to the pathetic extent that he did.

    And I hope she makes millions off of this.
