    I agree, in my opinion she should have done it for her child, who should be more important than anything. When children start to get hurt by their parents decisions and arrangements, that's when it needs to stop.

    I of course don't know, because I was never in the Clinton bedroom while she was beating his ass over this, but I actually think the reason she stayed with him was because of the child. Not tossing Chelsea's father out and making the very public spectacle even more of a spectacle was probably very hard to do at the time, but she no doubt had an interest in protecting Chelsea from further pain.

    I watched that dopey show "Sister Wives" a few times. Not in a million years would you catch me in a polygamist marriage, but it made me realize just how differently people view marriage. For those 4 women, it works to have their husbands sleeping with/having children with 3 other women. I don't get it, but I respect it (which is why I think polygamist marriage should be legal for the non-Warren Jeffs types who marry 12 year olds). I feel that way about how Hillary handled it internally when it came to Bill. Marriage is different for everyone.

    That said, I suspect she probably kicked him in the balls more than once. I would have, and it would make me feel better.

    My problem with the issue wasn't so much "office romance" or "workplace sexual harassment." My concern was Lewinsky's age at the time. Society has numbers we've agreed on that supposedly assign "old enough" maturity on people. However, in practical terms everyone matures at a different level. Lewinski was closer to "wasn't prom cool" than being a fully mature woman. At best she was barely an adult, somebody's little girl and Clinton was old enough to be her dad.

    Cheating spouses and those who knowingly sleep with other peoples spouses are both asshole jerks, There is no moral high ground.
    Bill and Hillary's marriage has for quite some time amounted to nothing more then a business arrangement. She was important to him while he was in the oval office (insert first lady here) and she would not have a political career without him. As soon as those two are completely done with politics they will split faster then a blue stained dress in a landromat.

    Yes because wives never ever stay in a relationship where a husbands cheat.

    Happens all the time. Let's not forget, she also had another very good reason not to leave. Her daughter.

    Staying together for the sake of the child doesn't really work here: The child is grown, married, and expecting a baby of her own.

    This point has been made by several others and it is a valid one to a thinking mind. My real concern in all of this is the double standards in which women are treated in a sex scandal. And in this one in particular, it happen to involve the president but not just any president but one that was very popular with women, especially feminists who supposedly believe in real and fair equality for women yet most of these feminist elites in journalism who were supporters of Clinton made no bones in protecting him and branding Lewinksy the trashy slut. The elite circle of feminist women like Maureen Dowd, who got her Pulitzer for trashing Monica, Gloria Steinem, Ruth Marcus, Andrea Peyser were just a few who wrote relentlessly about Monica kicking her in the teeth every chance they could get. And it continues today if you caught some of their articles in response to Lewinsky's piece in Vanity Fair. But then again 17 years later their favorite candidate for president is Hillary Clinton who blames the women including herself for Bill's bad behavior. What is wrong with this picture? The only viable conclusion is left leaning feminists are hypocrites.

    That isn't the end of the story.

    The abuse Lewinsky endured came after the affair when the powerful did everything they could to trash the woman and every other woman Bill Clinton has screwed. Clinton isn't just a douchebag, he is a sexual predator. And all the women that were misfortunate enough to get involved with him paid a huge price and none more than Lewinsky. While the powerful chewed them up and spit them out, Clinton goes on to make millions off his book, speaking engagements and living the good life. And the women the Clintonites were so willing to destroy painting them out to be bimbos, stalkers, sluts, trailer trash etc. assigned them to a life of humiliation while ole Billy boy is awarded by being the superstar speaker at the last Democrat Convention.
    Unless you have evidence of rape, there's no grounds for any interpretation of his actions as being predatory. Either these women consented or they didn't. If they did, they're equally complicit, abuse of privilege notwithstanding. You're attempting to make the same argument that failed the Nazis at Nuremberg.

    Lewinsky was no babe in the woods. She was a grown woman. While I'm fully aware that society has seen fit to grant women impunity, her moral standing is deservedly no less suspect than Clinton's.

    So yeah. End of story.
