I just have a big issue with her getting put out as some sort of victim here. She wasn't a victim. I'm willing to bet she was fully aware of what was going on, even if he was coming onto her, and possibly even encouraged it herself.

    Yes, he was a frickin' moron for having any sexual relations with anyone working in the White House or really government in general (I have no idea whether or not Hillary really cares or not if he sleeps around with other people, so I don't know if he was a moron or not for having an affair period). But that doesn't make him some sexual predator. And we have no idea if he was using his "power" to get her to do stuff for him, or if she was doing stuff for him for her own gains (whatever she may have thought she could get, heck she could just be infatuated with guys in charge of her).
    The left demonized Lewinsky during this whole thing blaming her for the incident while placing Billy Boy above the fray. It was appalling and it is appalling to see it continue after all these years. There are a lot of things in the childhood of Lewinsky that a psychologist could point to as reasons that result in needy/insecure women. But there are also those types of males that know how to spot those "needy women" to exploit them. Hello Billy Boy.

    She got $1M dealing with rights for her Barbara Walters interview, $500K for being a part of Monica's Story (an autobiography written soon after the incident), $300K endorsement deal from Jenny Craig, worked on a reality dating program (Mr. Personality), was a correspondent for a British news channel, and she sold her own line of handbags (she started knitting during the scandal, I guess) for about 6 years. She also showed up on several other shows, particularly after the immunity agreement expired. Plus, her parents were well off to begin with. She wasn't exactly from a farm in Nebraska. She went to a private school in Bel Air and a "family connection" got her the internship to begin with.

    Yes he was impeached but from the comments in this thread alone there are several who have a forgiving spirit toward him but not Lewinsky. And I think that tells it all.

    Or she could have just as much blame in this whole thing and it is being ignored because some want to view her as the victim and Clinton as this horrible man who took advantage of his intern. I would call him stupid. I think she though simply likes powerful men and/or saw an opportunity for future gain. Nothing about her attitude, then or even now, indicates to me that she was a victim in this.

    And I think you think too much and read way too much between the lines. She was an intern. He was the President. Calling what he did as being just stupid is an understatement.

    Yes, a few commenters on DP = "the left." Gotcha.
