    But again, what good does this do anyone? It is not going to help keep any press off of Lewinsky. It also is not likely in the least to change anyone's opinion about her (although it may cause some more younger people to have an opinion about her, negative or positive, when they probably wouldn't even have known about or cared about her before.

    The vast majority of those my age and younger either a) haven't heard of her (my brother, 6 years younger, had no clue who she was by name and couldn't recognize her photo) or b) could care less if she had an affair with an ex-POTUS (more power to her). Bringing this up only perpetuates the things she is claiming have made her life miserable, notoriety and media interest.

    And it isn't the Clintons bringing this stuff up. It is mainly the Republicans and some Dem rivals.
    I guarantee you if Clinton runs your little brother and a whole lot more will learn about Lewinsky. Because everywhere there is a Clinton running for office the name comes up. And how dare you make the claim that her retaliating to her name being bantered around and setting the record straight perpetuates the notoriety etc. it is the first damn time in 10 friggin years the woman has had control over what was printed about her. Now if this makes the Clintonites uncomfortable.......too bad.

    Why? This was plenty enough to do it.

    First, anyone who believes that they have any true control over what is written about them is fooling themselves. You might have temporary control, but it will go rather quickly. Second, it isn't like the Clintons have had really that much more control over what was written about Lewinsky over the last few years. Clinton wrote very little at all about the affair in his book and that was about 10 years ago. They certainly haven't been bringing her up.

    We have no clue what happened within the context of their relationship.

    I have known a few families that stayed together after adultery. Some people put sex in a different perspective within the context of the marriage.
    I have no doubt that the Clintons reached an "understanding" a very, very long time ago. I also don't think Hillary cares one way or the other where Bill's dipping his wick. But there is the issue of public humiliation and Hillary's tolerating this for so long because what truly excites her is power/influence.

    Lewinsky has remained silent all these years. And it's her story to tell.

It is handling it privately in their own way.
    Oh please, when you stay married to the husband who cheated on you but call the person he cheated with names, then it's obvious who is bearing the brunt of blame in the situation. The other woman of course.

    Right . . . Monica the 22-year-old intern seduced Slick Willy.

    No they don't bring it up, they have their minions do it for them as they have from the beginning painting Lewinsky like a piece of trash just like all the other women Bill has engaged in affairs. The woman is always the one that gets trashed by the Clinton minions. Except for Hillary of course.

    If this isn't some kind of deal to dispose of Hillary baggage before the campaign I'll eat my hat.
    The victim is always to blame, never the Clintons.

    I know, but people don't have a problem with making derogatory remarks about Monica. Some people actually make it sound as if ladies' man Bill was the victim here. It's utterly ridiculous. I think it's quite obvious who seduced who here. All you have to do is look at the pictures of Monica looking at him to know. Look at how she looks at him!!



    She was quite obviously infatuated with this man (and I'm quite he was good at it too).

    It's as if "Horn-Dog-in-Chief" is clever or acceptable.

    Yep, I remember reading how Lewinsky, Flowers, Brodwick, Willy, and others were absolutely trashed for their testimony by the Clintonites. The same people that claim to be staunch supporters of women's rights. Makes you want to gag over the hypocrisy. And Hillary is no different, she blames herself and Lewinsky for Bill's bad behavior. WTF?
