jared, why now? Why is she coming forward now? It's too early to have the most impact on the 2016 election. If she wanted to affect the 2016 election, she should have waited another year, at least.
Yes she was used and abused by Bill Clinton, as were many other women. She says it was consensual between two adults, and she's right but that doesn't excuse the most powerful man in the world taking advantage of a very young girl (compared to his age) in his office while on the job. Just about anyone else would have, and should have been fired.
He had decades of affairs, taking advantage of many women, so this was nothing new for him. A pro and a rookie...no contest.
She was also used and abused by everyone in Washington and the national media who thought they could advance their own agenda by the story.
To many of us, the cover up was worse than the crime, which is not uncommon.
"I DID NOT HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH THAT WOMAN...MISS LEWINSKI." The lies and denies were much worse than the affair, and it has been happening for a long time with our presidents, but most famously with Clinton and Kennedy.
Yes, Lewinski was a "scapegoat" but she did it to herself by her actions, just like Clinton did it to himself by his actions. They both deserve all the criticism that they received. Responsibility for ones actions? What a concept!
As terrible a person as Clinton was, he was our last good president.
