    I guess you don't understand power imbalance. A college professor will be censured if he has sex with his college protege' for the same reason. A doctor? Same reason. Psychiatrist? Same reason.

    President of the United States? Are you kidding me?

    I never said it was right or ethical.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Experienced? hmmmm. Monica had issues growing up. One of them was her weight. Being fat and attending Beverly Hills High School is not a good combination. Especially if you are hoping to get a date. She transferred to a prep school her senior year. That is where she met her lover, married drama teacher. She was 18. She told that because of her weight, he was the first man that ever made her feel beautiful. Yeah, really sounds like an experienced ole gal.

    No. It's the married man that is a jerk. She made no commitment to either one of them, Bill or Hillary.

    I believe his behavior was illegal. He was in a power position over her and her job was purely at his discretion. The vast disparity of age plays into that. Btw, federally, sexual harassment at the workplace is against the law.

    Bob Packwood lost his office because of it. Clinton should have too.

    Her life was made a mockery. Him? He goes on. And his wife?? What a piece of work she is. She should have been crying her eyes out for Monica Lewinsky. She should have distanced herself from her whore-hound of a husband. Instead, she "stood by her man," accepted his lies (in public), and set so bad an example for women all over the world, that it will take us years to recover.

    Except it was a welcome thing for her political career. It was her dealings with the Rose Law Firm that landed him in hearings in the first place. His sexual harassment distracted the public from that and allowed her a future career in politics.
