Do you really think Clinton's the ONLY person in the White House to have EVER gotten a piece?

    This didn't have to get to the special prosecutor. She could have had that dress dry cleaned.

    Believe me I am usually the first to defend the woman, and while I do believe Clinton abused his position of power, I don't believe Lewinsky's squeaky clean in all this either. You make your bed, you lie in it........so to speak.
    What? Dry clean the dress, lie to the prosecutor? WTF? This whole incident was discovered through another employee whom Monica ended up working with at the Pentagon. She was older than Monica and Monica confided in her about her encounters with the president. Monica was "in love" with Bill Clinton and I state "in love" as an infatuated school girl. Linda Tripp who she confided in was disturbed over the president's behavior and this young woman all giddy over it. Monica shared with Linda Tripp phone calls Clinton made to Monica and sexual encounters. This older gal was well aware of what the President was doing and she is the one that ratted him out and was one of the women who later met the wrath of Clinton's war room making her life a total Hell over it. So get your facts straight.

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.”

    In retrospect, I wish Bill Clinton would have just admitted to the affair, and then he would not have been impeached for perjury. [Although, I will admit, that back then I was happy to see him in trouble.]

The bottom line is Monica was Bill's problem, not Hillary's. She will have no effect at all on 2016 except to give those who would never vote for her another reason not to vote for her.
    It's true that Monica will have no effect on the 2016 race. Benghazi will be the 900 lb gorilla on Hillary's back if she runs. Obamacare will also drag her down. She will campaign on fixing is, however it will remind everyone about "Hillarycare".....which she attempted to shove down our throats even without holding public office.

    If he had admitted the affair it would have merely been a short term embarrassment rather then a scandal. His crime came when he obstructed justice in an attempt to cover it up. Same with Nixon. The Watergate burglary by itself would not have led to successful impeachment hearings. However hisa attempts to obstruct justice did. At least he had the honor to resign and avoid putting his family and the nation through the impeachment process.

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 think having both an abortion and blowing the president all in one year qualifies one for being a loony tune.

    Or for a reality show.

    Key point. If she didn't want what followed she should have kept her trap shut.

    She was still a grown adult. Honey we've all done stupid things for love. When you're over 18 you take the rap for your own actions. At 19, really you KNOW the US president ain't gonna give it all up for you.

    No, he resigned because he knew fighting the impeachment was futile, the votes were there. Nixon's resignation was not an act of honor, it was an act of ... well, of resignation. He knew he was cooked.

    WTF????? Seriously? A very young woman who obviously had a need to talk to a more mature woman was not someone equipped to handle such a relationship. I don't know of any 22 year old woman who would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG the president of the U.S. the most powerful man in the world calling you up to set up the next scheduled time where they could perform fellatio on one another this 22 year old is suppose to keep her mouth shut? You know it is people with your kind of attitude that keep women from coming out and speaking up or confiding in others when something isn't quite right or they are being abused and are too stupid to know it. Linda Tripp saw the abuse and ratted the SOB out for it.
