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.”

    I have to say that I do have sympathy for Monica. She was young and starstruck. What young woman wouldn't be when you have the President of US fawning all over you? Also, I don't know why some people are willing to give Bill Clinton a pass on this but not Monica. After all, Monica wasn't the one who made vows to Hilary. That would be Bill who broke his vows.

    Good. I'm glad that my argument, which you ignored, convinced you of the truth.

It is the fact that he and his chief staffers had the power to destroy these women, to turn the focus strictly on them and away from him, in the most cruel and destructive manner. Some have testified they actually feared for their lives during that time. It was vicious and brutal, something that would have outraged Hillary had it been a Republican or anybody else that it was politically correct to attack. But she was and is silent about that. And that I find very difficult to forgive. And I won't trust her to do the honorable and honest thing as President either.
    I believe the term that was bantered around to describe the women he engaged in inappropriate behavior were called Bimbo erruptions. If ever there was a war on women, that period was a stellar example how they viciously set their attack dogs out to destroy the credibility/lives of these women (several in number) and not a peep out of Hillary knowing damn well of her husband's extra curricular activities. Their inner circle had their own war room set up to go after these women......those who had admitted having sex with him and those who told of his unwelcomed advances. And all the women who came forward ironically were registered Democrats. And Hillary? well she blamed it on a Rightwing conspiracy. Lewinsky describes herself in the article as being made the scapegoat to protect the powerful. Those who engaged in this destructive demagoguery of these women now claim the right side of the aisle has a war on women. And they are the same ones that will go after a conservative woman in the most personal way. Seems to me the real war on women isn't on the right.

    I do too Chris. I can't even imagine having to live through that humiliation at the age of 22 and for 17 years that followed. To be made a laughing stock of the butt end of jokes that now a blow job is called a Lewinsky. For crying outloud Clinton was old enough to be her father. And as an intern that is the role any parent would hope a mentor would become. But that didn't stop those in power making her out to be some loony tune and still do.

    I never understand why the "other woman" gets blame for an affair. You're spot on Chris. BILL took a vow to be faithful to Hillary - not Monica. If Mr. Borrachos ever strayed, I would emasculate him, not the bimbo he strays with. She doesn't owe me ****...he does.
