They were trying to pin something on Clinton for years and finally got him to lie under oath. What a waste of time and money when the republicans should have been doing better things.
    Your point is moot. He WAS in fact Impeached. And you also conveniently gloss over the WHY. He was on trial for sexual harassment. The details of the Jones case seldom are even discussed when considering his perjury charges. In many ways, Lewinsky was the best thing that could have happened to him. It put the focus on the pres boning an intern and having her insert cigars into her snatch prior to him smoking them instead of on the account of him exposing himself to a campaing staffer and then asking her to blow him.

    Look...no one gave a crap about the Flowers affair. No one was interested in the numerous women he slept with. The rape...the mashing...the sexual harrassment...those were different because they were not consensual. If he didnt want to get nailed for perjury then he should have learned from Ms Lewinsky when to keep his mouth shut.

    Should we keep our ears open to a more... credible source? Sure. Am I gonna get excited about this just yet? No. Just as I didn't get that excited about the Edwards story till it was picked up by real journalist.
    Next, you'll start questioning the reality of the ghost of Elvis.

    I'm not sure what he was to learn from Ms. Lewinsky as I thought her problem was that didn't keep her mouth shut.

    Why do liberals never understand this. It's called integrity, and when you don't have it, you're vulnerable to almost anything.

    Let's say China wants nuclear secrets, and they threaten Bill Clinton that if he doesn't turn them over, they'll make sure the press finds out about Monica Lewinsky.......

    Just how far would John Edwards have gone to keep his situation quiet if given the chance?

    If this is true, Boehner should be ousted as Speaker, and the people of Ohio need to get rid of him first chance.

    Character matters. If you can't honor your most basic commitments, you shouldn't serve.

    Believe it or not, Middleground, LOTS of people are true to their spouses. Lots of people tell the truth and do the right thing. They should be our leaders, not the unprincipled, weak-minded egomaniacs of our society.

    ...my point exactly.... but integrity extends to practicing what you preach. The democrats are not choir boys either, but at least they don't further deplete their integrity by trying to tell you they are, as is the case with guys on the other side of the aisle. See above

    So may I take it this was given thorough consideration by you in the last presidential election where we had a spousal cheater vs. one that has been true to his wife (once again, the dem with the greater integrity....uh?)

    Put Barney Frank in your sexual miscreant chart, and the printer will run out of ink.

    I..did...not..have..sex..with..that..woman.

    It depends on what the definition of "is" is.

    And unlike liberals, conservatives don't embrace their bad apples. We throw them out with the trash.

    Conservatives embrace their principles, while liberals embrace their celebrities.

    Do you really think Boehner will get thrown out if the allegations are true? Conservatives have just as many dirtballs amoungst their ranks as the liberals.

    LOL! No doubt Clinton would have been in less trouble had she kept her mouth shut.

    You and Erod have me convinced. Yes, Republicans sometimes show a lack of integrity by cheating on their spouses. Yes, Democrats sometimes show a lack of integrity by cheating on their spouses. I think anyone would have a difficult time showing that one has more integrity than the other.
