Or is this about an insecure woman who acted out foolishly or both?
    What do you consider "much older"?

    Evening Year2late, Bill Clinton was born on August 19, 1946. The affair happened in 1998. So he turned 52 years old that year. He was 34 years Monica's senior. I say with the documented episodes and testimonies of other women in regard to similar behavior, 34 years certainly warrants "much older".

    The affair took place over nine separate incidents from late 1995 to early 1997.

    Are my dates wrong Kobie? If so what the Hell does a couple of years matter? He was still well over half her age.

    I was speaking about her FIRST married lover, he was 10 years older. At that age I enjoyed 10 years older. Boys my age were all about the party and the conquest. Blecch. But NEVER would I have considered a married man.

    I do not consider 10 years older to be that bad.

    I don't consider age to be a factor on a up and up relationship but I do find it a factor when the man is married, in authority over the woman and much more older than her while she is infatuated with him. That's an equation for disaster.

    Exactly. She had sex as a consenting adult. She chose as an adult to open her mouth about it later.

    Honey I've sex with men and regretted it. Many of us have been there as naïve youngsters. I have however fully taken responsibility for any actions and decisions I took as a consenting, adult woman. I've never been in a position to make money talking about or writing about my sexual exploits. And no, I've never been silly enough to believe any man in a position senior to my own or in a marriage was ever going to give it all up for lil' ol' me. Come on, she had to be pretty stupid really. Sure she's paid a high price for her naïvety, but she took actions and decisions as a CONSENTING ADULT.

    Yes the media can be vile. However the media dogs were vile to Clinton too. The right wing press LOVED the fact that this was stick to beat a Democrat president with. An office fling became a media circus. It was a sad refection on the sorry state of the media and it wasn't fair to Lewinsky or Clinton.

    Frankly, if I were a US voter, my only concern would have been Clinton's political skills in office. Not that like all men, he gets horny occasionally. If she was underage that would be outrageous - but she wasn't. If he'd raped her or coerced her that would be entirely disgusting. But apparently, he didn't. Yes he told lies to try and cover up their antics. Cowardly scumbag behaviour, but it doesn't make Lewinsky into the Virgin Mary.

    It went over the course of years, they kept in contact when she was in DC.

    She does not strike me as a victim.

    Your ignorance is amusing as you claim voters should be concerned of his political skills ...well maybe you missed the info that he was getting serviced under the desk while talking to members of Congress and world leaders over Bosnia while getting a blow job. So much for being all focused on the afairs at hand.

    You also refuse to see any absurdity of a man over half her age who is suppose to be her mentor encouraging a sexual relation misusing his powers/authority over her. I really don't care how many blowjobs you have performed with regret when you were young and dumb, You didn't have to pay 17 years in the public light for it. Most likely in all your tough talk you couldn't have lived up to the same scrutiny Lewinsky has for the same choices. Hypocrite.

    and as an American I was upset back in early times-our President's had great looking first ladies and even hotter mistresses (Jackie and Marilyn) Clinton destroyed that image of AMerican Primacy

    and I guess Monica wants to get some cash after receiving no royalties for her role in Crouching Intern, Hidden Cigar!
