    Frankly....I judge BOTH OF them. They BOTH new better. Monica new better when she had her first (and prolonged) affair with a married man. She knew better when she flirted and snapped her thong and the POTUS - and their mutual sexcapades began.

    And clearly Bill knew better - with each and every one of his multiple adulterous affairs.

    Yeah, I judge. I judge them both.

    I question the motive of Monica for agreeing to this. Who the hell even cared about her anymore?

    The only reason we are talking now is because SHE allowed this to be out there.

    Who the hell cared anymore?????

    I refuse to be bothered by self inflicted wounds. Sad fact, many self inflicted wounds occur in early adulthood. You carry them with you, they cannot go away. But frankly = IMHO - putting this all out there when really and truly very people gave a **** anymore...just dragged to the surface what millions had long since forgot!
    You have a convenient memory. In 2004 the whole affair was ratchet up once more by Bill Clinton in the release of his autobiography where he pretty much decimated her character. It was just this February thAT Rand Paul invoked the name "Lewinsky" responding to Clinton and Democrat's allegations that Republicans had a "WAR ON WOMEN". In which he replied ""If (Democrats) want to take a position on women's rights, by all means do. But you can't do it and take it from a guy who was using his position of authority to take advantage of young women in the workplace," On NBC Meet the Press last month Rand was asked if Bill Clinton's past should be a consideration in a potential second presidential bid by his wife, Paul said he's "not saying that," but "sometimes it's hard to separate one from the other." When it comes to judging Bill Clinton's legacy, however, Paul said the affair should certainly be considered a factor. And then there was a report just a few weeks ago about the release of some public documents stored at the University of Arkansas library that detail some of Hillary Clinton's discussions with a close friend, Diane Blair, at the time. Clinton told Blair that Lewinsky was a "narcissistic loony toon." Ironically that is what the Clinton groupies are calling her in their hit pieces. Lewinsky is a threat to Hillary. So apparently Lewinsky will not have any peace as long as the Clintons are in the lime-light. With her name thrusted back into the news after remaining silent for 10 years she writes an article for Vanity Fair to set the record straight and because of what she has had to endure through the bullying of powerful people wants to speak in a public forum against it. And the same people who humiliated/bullied her for 17 years are the same folks who trashed her for coming to her own defense in the Vanity Fair article. I did read today she is shopping for a tell all book. I bet that has got the Clintons shaking in their boots. I hope to goodness she does it and makes millions on it. NO ONE should ever have to go through what that woman has over mistakes she made in her youth. There's a very long list of women the Clintonites have trashed over succumbing to Billy Boy's advances. I hope Monica remembers them too. After all every woman on that list was a registered Democrat. Let Hillary stick that in her pipe and smoke it.

    Sorry, you are now talking 10 years ago...do you see what I am getting at? Never read the book. Did you? Never talked to anybody who read it either. 10 years after the book. Nobody cares and she is out there bringing it up herself again.

    And frankly...what defense? She had (at least) 2 affairs with married men. Unless it was rape or blackmail (then it would be a crime not a mutual lustfest)she was a more than willing participant. Her behavior was atrocious in both affairs as was the behavior of both men involved. She is just rehashing it again.

    Clinton's autobiography was covered ad nauseam in the press, especially the excerpts describing his encounters with Lewinsky. Lewinsky countered by giving an interview in London claiming he had a chance to tell the truth in his book and didn't. Geesh the whole affair was once again on the front page of tabloids and magazines everywhere because sex sells. You didn't have to read the book to know what was in it.

    Good grief when a powerful older man takes advantage of you in your stupid youth then lies about what occurred blaming the young and dumb one for it destroying what character she had left, that is a good defense. Now her name keeps popping up again because of Hillary possibly running for president and this time she has decided to "not walk on eggshells" in regard to her past. That's got to scare the hell out of them.

    The only reason her name showed up again in the last year or so was because a friend of Hillary's mentioned Hillary commenting about her. And that would not be the Clintons' fault.

    And how long did people talk about Bill's book? A couple of weeks? I didn't even know he mentioned her (barely knew he wrote a book, still couldn't tell you the name). In fact, how much of the book was "devoted" to her at all? Pretty sure she is barely even mentioned in that book. From the reviews I've seen, the scandal only takes up a few pages of the 1008 page memoir.

    There is no way that they are scared of her "telling all". She has maintained the whole time that it was consensual. The whole world knows the story. What exactly do you think this could possibly do to the Clintons? Everyone knows that Bill is a dog and that Hillary wasn't exactly the most loving woman. It isn't going to be as "shocking" as some may believe. It would be more of a rehash with just a little extra details.

    Again....10 years ago. Where does her name keep popping up????This is the first time I have heard about her in many years!!What does Monica have to do with Hillary? She was the victim of Bill and Monica and weathered the storm.

    I am curious....can you site me sources for her name repetitively coming up in the media? Seriously, before this article has she even been on your radar in years??

    By the way...who benefits from Monica coming to the forefront again? Dems? Republicans? Monica? Bill? Fox?

    Re: Monica Lewinsky Breaks her Silence

    Why do I get the feeling that if the CEO of Exxon Mobil was caught having an affair with a 22 year old intern in his company, the ones criticizing Lewinsky in this thread would be the same ones calling for the Exxon CEO to be burned at the stake, calling him a user and abuser of young girls, a pervert, a monster, and so on, and defending the honor of the young lady in question....?

    Partly because the idea that Nixon resigned out of honor is patently false.

    I don't know why you get that feeling. I don't know who the Exxon Mobil CEO is, nor do I care where he sticks his dick.
