    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.
    Slick Willy's behavior in regards to Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broderick is certainly predatory.

    The term sexual predator is used pejoratively to describe a person seen as obtaining or trying to obtain sexual contact with another person in a metaphorically "predatory" manner. Analogous to how a predator hunts down its prey, so the sexual predator is thought to "hunt" for his or her sex partners. Clinton has quite a few trophies for his hunting expeditions.

    Oh, metaphorically speaking. I see.

    When the metaphorical becomes literal, you may have a point. Short of that, you might not do so well in court.

    Prior to Bill's involvement with ML sexual harassment in the workplace was as hot an issue as Benghazi is today. The head of GE lost, so did Bob Packwood and many others. There was a firestorm over the Clarence Thomas nomination over the whiff of harassment, and hearings were held for several days in a "public lynching". However when it happened to to Bill Clinton even NOW, and all self proclaimed left wing women's rights groups, instantly changed their tune to 'it's just sex' and they are both consenting adults.

    Leftists have used women for political gain in the same way they have used Blacks.

    Referring here to "Troopergate," Clinton didn't even have to hunt; he just waited in the blind for other hunters/procurers to bring him "trophies."
