    Bull****.

    Lewinski was a 19-year old adult who knew what she was doing, who aggressively initiated the affair, actually.

    You are a big girl, and you should know this by now: even if Clinton had been the initiator all women of legal age are fair game for any man on the make. Clinton did commit a grave immorality, but it was was not that he had sex with someone 30 years younger, it was that he cheated on his wife. I am not a fan of Hillary the politician, but I feel sorry for Hillary the woman and wife: she was the one who was wronged, and that should be obvious to anyone who is living in the real world.

    I'll tell you this too: Lewinski shared in that grave immorality by having an affair with a married man, and I hope the little whore doesn't make a cent off this belated tell-all that she is trying to foist on the world.

    If this isn't some kind of deal to dispose of Hillary baggage before the campaign I'll eat my hat.
    What are you talking about?

    What I'm saying is that by spilling the beans now she heads off a lot of the inevitable criticism that we'll see during the Hillary campaign in 2016. In other words, I suspect that this is as much a political move as it is anything else. Lewinsky herself has little to nothing to gain by "exposing" something that's been widely known for 20 years so there must be another reason.

    Not that you are wrong, but why do it now and not before 2008 when it looked like she would be the front runner then like it does now? Seems like before the 2008 election would have been a good time to air this out as well.

    Good question and I don't really have an answer. It could be a change in campaign strategy.

    Spell it all out for me, OK?

    Criticism on what grounds?
    Criticism by whom?

    If I had to bet, I'd say because democrats don't have anyone to run up against Mrs. Clinton this time. In '08, democrats had two strong candidates, 2016 is going to be different. I believe lutherf might know what he's talking about. But, who knows, maybe Monica needs money now?

    Probably more Monica needs money. There is a lot more for Republicans to attack Clinton on now then there was in 2008 or 2007. This would just more likely than not come off as some petty Republican attack on Clinton given how long ago it was then anything else.

She was only 19 years of age when the affair began if I recall correctly but makes it very clear the relationship was consensual. My own opinion is that she paid a heavy price for her poor judgment. But at 19 and having a powerful man such as a president coming on to you, well let's just say I have always held Bill Clinton more responsible because of her age. Now Lewinsky says her current goal, “is to get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment as she suffered and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”

    You can read more here.... Exclusive: Monica Lewinsky Writes About Her Affair with President Clinton | Vanity Fair
    gee let's see.

    A 19 year old girl.

    A 47 year old married man with a history of seducing women.

    And the most powerful man in the world.

    Anyone who thinks Monica is in any way responsible here needs to think about having a daughter and her being in similar circumstances, at the whim of a president or any powerful man. In any law office he would have had his license suspended, it's called sexual harassment even though it was with consent....as if a 19 year with hormones raging is capable of making adult decisions.


    The role of the adult was his. And so was the responsibility. I would like to think a president has more control over his obsessions than that, cared more about a woman's reputation that he did to sully hers and call her a liar to boot...I do hope this is planned and timed to take the wind out of Hilary. The whole family is sick. That ambitious cow of a woman put her selfish career goals ahead of the reputation and feelings of a teen ager, As far as I am concerned she stopped being a woman at that point.


    By his actions it is clear Bill never was. A real man would never have unzipped his fly.

    I certainly hope so.

    It's a bit soon, but it might work.

    let us not forget how Hillary attacked this young woman.
