    Seriously....how much whackier does it get.

    How could the Bill and Monica affair affect present day politics. The consensual affair was 20 years ago. It is not like she was the cheating spouse. Just makes absolutely no difference.

    The folks who hate Hillary will still hate her.

    The folks who like Hillary will still like her.

    I watched the "Factor" segment with Laura Ingraham and Dr. Cheney, and she wasn't speaking of a conspiracy--that's CrooksandLiars spin. Here is a link; skip to 2:09.

    I thought what Dr. Cheney said made perfect sense. Getting this out now makes it "old news" later. It's a sensible political strategy. The terms Cheney used were "tactic" and "strategy." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...tial-plan.html

    I missed the post where I used the words "acceptable" and "normal". Can you link to it? Because it wasn't in the post of mine you quoted. Today's grammar lesson...."legal" and "moral" aren't synonyms for "acceptable" and "normal".
    i offered your exact post. trying to now backpedal from your own words?
    you were the one who insists "... as a 22 year old, like that poster keeps saying, Monica was free to sleep with whomever she chose to, and she did just that. ..."
    and my presentation was that you would not find a 22 year old sleeping with your husband to be acceptable. thus making this statement beyond false: "... Nobody should apologize for doing something that is their right to do." as if that 22 year old has a 'right' to have sex with your husband
    that one can do something does not mean that they should
    surprised i even need to point that out

    And for the 4th time for the reading impaired (you and whoever the "us" is that is reading over your shoulder"), I never said I'm okay with my husband having an affair.
    i know you are not ok with your husband having an affair ... which causes me to believe you would be entitled to an apology if he did. again, proving your statement ... let me think of the appropriate word: wrong
    I'm not Hillary Clinton. Do you think I'm Hillary Clinton?
    i know you are not hillary clinton. the absence of logic and maturity in these posts gives that away quite rapidly
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

Lynne Cheney argues that Monica Lewinsky's tell-all article is part of Hillary Clinton's presidential plan | Mail Online
    This was already old news many years ago!!!!!!!!

    There is nothing to get behind!!!

    She makes absolutely no sense. At all.

    This is not Hilary's baggage. It is Bill's. SO unless we are saying Bill is running for a third term, this issue makes no sense. At all.

    But all this presupposes some conspiracy theory that Monica is a part of. That would make Monica in cahoots (I love that word) with Hilary.

My gut instinct is that Hilary made him suffer.
    Bill Clinton was the very powerful President of the United States at the time and, as such, was elected to make important decisions. Having sex in the Oval Office with an young employee was an extremely bad decision and points to his failure as a responsible and intelligent adult, as well as a husband. Nothing like this would have happened without his encouragement.

    Does the rumor that Bill Clinton is considering a public apology to Hillary (and, perhaps, Lewinsky) make sense to you?

    And yet, that was 20 years ago and as a nation we prospered under Bill Clinton.

    20 years ago. You are making like her husbands infidelities 20 years ago have bearing on current politics.

    Seriously.

    Rumor?

    Lots of rumors around.

    And by the way, an apology from an adulterer to his wife and the mistress ----- no say it isn't so.

    And yet, had an amazingly successful presidency. If a third term could have been possible....he would have been elected.
