    The only harm was from the people who publicized the incident to harm Clinton. She went to Washington with her 'presidential kneepads,' remember? I have no problem with her wanting to be a presidential groupie, and I don't hold it against Clinton very much that he couldn't resist the offer, few men could have. It would have been nothing but harmless fun if it wasn't discovered and publicized.

    Also, it is not unethical to lie to people who are only trying to harm you.

    You are a big girl, and you should know this by now: even if Clinton had been the initiator all women of legal age are fair game for any man on the make. Clinton did commit a grave immorality, but it was was not that he had sex with someone 30 years younger, it was that he cheated on his wife. I am not a fan of Hillary the politician, but I feel sorry for Hillary the woman and wife: she was the one who was wronged, and that should be obvious to anyone who is living in the real world.

    I'll tell you this too: Lewinski shared in that grave immorality by having an affair with a married man, and I hope the little whore doesn't make a cent off this belated tell-all that she is trying to foist on the world.
    Yeah all of 19, away from home for the first time in DC of all places as an intern. Usually it is common practice the elders whomever the intern is working under look after the interns as surrogate parents. Lewinsky was assigned to the White House. So I guess one could conclude the Big Daddy (Bill) wasn't exactly living up to the surrogate scenario. To claim all woman at some magical age should know better is bull****!!!!!!!!!!! Especially when the most powerful man in the world is making the moves on her. WTF

    I have never understood why those on the right wing didn't go after Clinton for a National Security breach. He put himself in a position to be bribed. Instead the religious nut jobs tried to prosecute a blow job.

    Now cue up the...but, but, but he lied nonsense.
    It's called perjury.

    See, here's the thing. When men in power do absolutely ridiculous things, when they cheat on their wives, when they take advantage of their position to use women, they are dishonoring the office of the presidency. I know we don't think much about that these days, but it's not the man, it's the office. His conduct was deplorable. He put himself into a position where he just might have actually been blackmailed. And who knows that he wasn't?? We certainly don't.

    As for men being unable to resist? I'd beg to differ with you there. Most married men would have no problem resisting the advances of someone who was, in comparison, a child. I'd bet you dollars to donuts on that. Or do you think that most of your brothers are horny dogs?

    Obama, Change we can believe in.
    If Bill Clinton had been unmarried you wouldn't have heard a peep out of me.

    But it is Hillary who I am swinging for most strongly. Her politics has no bearing at all on the sympathy she deserves for the abuse she took as a wronged and deceived wife.

    She was not 19.

    Repeat, she was not 19.

    Monica Lewinsky was born in July 1973. Her first White House job started in July 1995. Her sexual involvement with President Clinton started in November 1995.

    She was 22. It's math, people.
