    And she wasn't 19 - she was a 22 year old college graduate. And she already had years long affair with a married man under her belt before Clinton.

    We are sexual beings. Sometimes we make stupid mistakes because of it. Monica and Bill made gross errors in judgment. And Bill lied under oath about it. Hillary had nothing to do with it.

    She certainly did. She was the one who coined the term "vast right wing conspiracy" in defense of Slick Willy, a phrase which continues to inspire left wing conspiracy theorists today.

    Oh, yes, of course there was. It involved trying to silence and hide Bill's problems with women. Clinton on Flowers '92 - YouTube

    This was also my point about Republicans exploiting the situation for political gain. If anyone in their right mind thinks that Republicans only motive here was to see some sort of justice served then they are ****in nuts. Lets not forget who was the ringleader in trying to bring down Clinton.. Mr. Gingrich, who himself was involved in a few love affairs. Republican hypocrisy combined with opportunism cannot be denied.

    It was funny, Hillary was made fun of saying stuff about right wing conspiracies -- seriously, I will bet over two decades later the DP boards still have folks bringing up Vince Foster or Whitewater. I heard a Rep. talking head dredging that stuff up (again) just the other day. We are talking twenty plus year old material.

    One jackass was even bringing up brain injury and Hillary. Seriously, no, there is no vast right wing conspiracy against Clinton.

    If Hillary becomes a candidate, all the past probably will be dredged up, as will any potential health issues. And health issues are important. Why was she wearing those special glasses? If she no longer is, isn't this also significant?

    Gingrich didn't go after Clinton for his "love affair". He went after Clinton for perjury. Remind me again when Gingrich was accused of or convicted of perjury. If he was, he's a hypocrite. If he wasn't, you're barking up the wrong tree, or you simply have no clue what Clinton did wrong.

    Her health issues are completely valid concerns when it comes to her being a candidate for President (in fact, that is one of the main reasons I would not vote for her). However, bringing up an affair that her husband had over 15 years ago is much more akin to mudslinging (and considering the reaction we are seeing, not exactly effective mudslinging). It really shows nothing about her character itself in a valid way, without making some major assumptions about her character to begin with, which would show bias one way or another.

    don't forget henry hyde, the person responsible for bringing the impeachment charges against bill clinton
    his extramarital affair was exposed by the husband of the woman he was screwing at the time
