We all know who we’re talking about. She’s back in the news with a story to sell.
I’m not interested. I heard it all before – ad nauseum.
Let’s be frank – Monica Lewinsky was NOT a victim. Bill Clinton was NOT a sexual predator. The real victims were Hillary, Chelsea, and the American people.
It was a sordid, tawdry tale of illicit sex and marital infidelity. The participants were consenting adults. It is not surprising that the wife of a philanderer did not have warm fuzzy feelings for her husband’s mistress.
Bill Clinton’s reputation and popularity survived because, taken on a whole, people decided that the good stuff outweighed the bad. Monica got thoroughly trashed because pretty much all anyone knows about her is she had an affair with a married POTUS. We still generally frown upon that kind of stuff.
Did she expect praise for her behavior? Bill treated her like men treat willing young women. He wasn’t mean or cruel. It’s not his fault if she fantasized that he would leave Hillary for her. The people who used and abused her were Bill’s enemies, and he was unable to protect her. Now Hillary’s enemies want to use and abuse Monica some more.
The moral of the story is that young women should not get involved with married men. It rarely results in a happy ending.
