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.
    Yeah, lots of liberals are just jerks.

    Were you suggesting a similar view point towards what a CEO does in private?

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?
    I opine, that a president was more concerned about purely religious laws being used against him for political purposes.

    If a CEO is beholden to his shareholders and customers, why shouldn't they be able to be "fired" for breaking that public trust with them. Do you believe Article 4, Section 2 should mean nothing as a moral for the citizens in the several States?

    The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states.

She would have made at most $1.5M in that 20 years. Yet she made that in the first year after the affair became public, and has made more since then.

    Because she was under immunity, Lewinsky was not permitted to talk publically about the case until 2002. She did do the interview with Walters but it was limited in scope. She received a good sum for that interview. So what? She also agreed to assist a biography about her life written by Morton which told her side of what happened in the Oval office. After 2002 she did a HBO special. And she hosted a show on Fox for one season.

    BUT it was when Bill Clinton released his autobiography My Life in 2004 where in it he blamed Monica for what happened and all the hatred toward her escalated in the press once again making it difficult in her personal life and business life. Nothing like having your pictures pasted all over the tabloids/magazines AGAIN while trying to get on with your life and the damn president lying about what happen to boot! So in 2005 she moved to London. In London she gave an interview calling Clinton a liar and maintained their relationship was a consensual one.

    Here is what she stated in the interview.

    He could have made it right with the book, but he hasn't. He is a revisionist of history. He has lied. [...] I really didn't expect him to go into detail about our relationship. [...] But if he had and he'd done it honestly, I wouldn't have minded. [...] I did, though, at least expect him to correct the false statements he made when he was trying to protect the Presidency. Instead, he talked about it as though I had laid it all out there for the taking. I was the buffet and he just couldn't resist the dessert. [...] This was a mutual relationship, mutual on all levels, right from the way it started and all the way through. [...] I don't accept that he had to completely desecrate my character.
    That was the last time she spoke about the incident almost a decade ago. While she was in London is when she earned her masters.

    So what she made monetarily those first few years doesn't make up for all the jobs she has applied for and denied because of the stigmatism that follows her. I feel if Clinton would have been honest in his autobiography, she never would have said another word. But now at 40 she is tired of it and is setting the record straight and believes she has a new purpose and that is to start talking about how those in power over us can bully, abuse, and revise history to paint you into anything they want especially using tools like the Internet.

    Last year Lewinsky's net worth was $500,000. This can be verified by doing a Google search "Monica Lewinsky's Net-Worth" proving what these people including the president did to her has hindered her in making a living. Ironically some of the same bitches in journalism who laud Bill and Hill Clinton pulled out their sharp knives today to slice and dice Lewinsky one more time over her upcoming article in Vanity Fair.

    Call me old fashioned but if a guy comes on my dress, it's straight to the dry cleaners. She kept that stain for a reason, right?

    I say there's equal blame 50/50. They were both consenting adults.

    On the one hand he was a scumbag. On the other hand, however young and naïve, she surely knew that blowing off the prezz may have consequences, especially if she chose not to keep quiet about it.
