Allowing corporations to guide us through a war is more denigrating to the Presidency. Thinking that a woman working 3 jobs to barely afford to support her family and does not have healthcare because it is a luxury as a "uniquely American experience" is much more denigrating to the Presidency.

    Sad fact some Men are dogs. Some women are dogs. More than anyone realizes or is willing to admit. But frankly - I want to avoid unnecessary wars, have jobs at a fair wage, access to decent healthcare, and a roof over my head. Two adults acting like jerks and thinking with their groins rather than their brains is really not going to change my prime concerns.

    You know, that is the typical response. We aren't talking about George Bush. We are talking about Bill Clinton. But your only defense is to turn the tables and say, "George Bush was a thousand times worse."

    I'm not going to argue that point. This thread is about Monica Lewinsky. And a President who disgraced his office, lied to Congress and was impeached.

    It is about perspective. Bill and Monica did nothing to change my life - did nothing to make it better or worse. Personal failures denigrate the presidency on one level. Knowingly lying us into wars and assuring war profiteering is alive and well while the economy of a country is being tossed off a cliff is on a whole different level.
    a
    Me having a momentary thought about Bill and Monica -"what jerks" has no bearing on the direction of the country as a whole.

    If any President had a couple affairs in office - but improved the economy while assuring that he was working towards the health and well being of Americans - I guarantee I would consider it a family issue.

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.”

    I find it funny that she is bringing up all this again, while at the same time (just today) the Green Bay Packers drafted a player named "Ha Ha Clinton-Dix".

    Morning Porchev, As more things come out about the article that went digital yesterday, what she addresses isn't so much rehashing the past but setting the record straight from current news being reported about her. The comments that Hillary made to her friend Blair that recently got published where Hillary is said to have called Monica a narcissistic loony tune and where Hillary blames herself as well as Monica for Bill Clinton's affair, Monica comes back with how she finds it "troubling" that Hillary Clinton blames the women in Bill's life and not Bill.

    In the news lately there have also been some politicians bringing up Lewinsky's name over the Democrats and their "War on Women" mantra using her as an example of how a Democrat president abused his power taking advantage of a young intern. Lewinsky responds stating she was taken advantage of but it was a consensual affair.

    The other person she addresses is the singer Beyoncé and her song "Partition" where the lyrics include, "He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse/He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown" -- is factually incorrect, according to Lewinsky. “Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d,'"


    There have been multiple conspiracy theories of why Lewinsky wrote the article. Personally, I think she is tired of powerful people misrepresenting what actually happened whether they be in politics or in pop culture making her the scapegoat. She made it very clear that no longer would she walk on eggshells or tip toe around someone else's political aspirations (Hillary). It's obvious, 17 years of this crap, 10 which she has been silent, is enough.

    If this isn't some kind of deal to dispose of Hillary baggage before the campaign I'll eat my hat.
    Clearly, she should have waited until September of 2016, that would have been very apolitical.

    Beyonce is an idiot.

    If I were Lewinsky, I'd be pretty sick and tired of people lobbing crap at me through the years, and hearing my name in songs by morons.

    I find it likely...that Beyoncé has had far more dresses "dry cleaned" than Lewinsky has ever even owned.

    I find it hypocritical how some people seem to give the ex-president a pass but are more than willing to denigrate Lewinski. To keep it in perspective, Monica Lewinski was an intern, Bill Clinton was the married POTUS. And obviously this wasn't the first messing around that he had done either. They don't call him "slick Willy" for nothing!
