Do you think your sexual activity could pass the test the same test set up for Lewinsky? Let me answer that for you .....Hell no! For the love of Pete she had a history of being infatuated with men in authority over her before she ever got to the position of being an intern for the Prez. She came from a broken home where she struggled to have a relationship with a father that had abandoned her....need I go on? You don't suppose an older gentleman doesn't pick up on those "needy" issues in a young girl do you? If not YOU should. And assholes prey on them. Enough said.

    Having a relationship with a married man one is onething.....twice is an active choice.

    No not an active choice....but at that age it clearly shows one that is compensating for the lack of a relationship with a father. And that is the case with Monica. Both her affairs were with men much older than her. Both were men in authority over her. Both men she was infatuated with.

    These are all things a young girl sees in her dad. Denied that and she goes looking for it in other forms for acceptance. They are prime candidates for men especially older men, to use and abuse.

    You weren't an intern for the most powerful boss in the world either.

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.



    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.
    She is worth over $500K and you think that is living in poverty or something? That she is "struggling"? I would feel lucky to be worth that much. Heck, that would be especially true if I only had a Masters degree in psychology, which has an average salary of $72K a year, $98K if they work in the higher end industrial settings. There are many people who would love to have a net-worth of $500K, especially when their biggest achievement was sleeping with the President.

    You yourself just proved that it wasn't actually the affair coming out that upset her (although I'm willing to bet she had wanted to be the one to bring it out publicly, on her terms), but rather how she was characterized as a "narcissistic loony toon" that ticked her off. However, from what I saw then and what I read, that description isn't really too far off. You are acting like she couldn't have been planning something from the start. Like she couldn't be scheming because of her age or she was only an intern to the President.

    It turns out that psychology agrees that a person like Lewinsky actually is most likely narcissistic.

    “The evolutionary psychology refers to the affair partner as the mate poacher,” Adelphi University Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies Professor Lawrence Josephs, Ph.D told Saludify. “In general, women or men who are prone to mate poaching tend to be high in narcissism, game playing and insecurely attached."

    Re: Monica Lewinsky Breaks her Silence

    I saw some pics of her on the news this morning. Monica actually looks better at 40 than she did when she was in her early 20s.

    This post should end the thread.

    It won't, though.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Some will flame me, I'm sure, but I think she's very attractive.

    Do you understand the definition of net-worth? It is the total assets minus total outside liabilities of an individual or a company. According to what has been reported on the Internet her net-worth is $500k so unless you have proof otherwise what you want to believe isn't fact. Your snark about her biggest achievement being that she slept with the president is telling. The woman at one time started her own business designing handbags up until Clinton published his autobiography. She gave up the business which was making money when she left for London due to the eruption of humiliation his book caused her. She worked as a newscaster while in London and earned her masters. Monica has several noteworthy accomplishments.
    You yourself just proved that it wasn't actually the affair coming out that upset her (although I'm willing to bet she had wanted to be the one to bring it out publicly, on her terms), but rather how she was characterized as a "narcissistic loony toon" that ticked her off.

    It's obvious Monica as a teen and young woman had insecurity issues. But to continue today with the bashing of calling her a loony tune 17 years later is disgusting. But that is what the Clinton click are still doing. Is there a proper term used in psychology to address those who suffer with the condition of heartlessness? A person that would allow another person's life to be destroyed, her character decimated in order to make him or herself not look so guilty? I hope she makes major bucks off of this article goes on every damn talk show and tells her side of the story and in the process help others who have been bullied, humiliated relentlessly over past mistakes.
