Monica Lewinsky Scandal Back in the Spotlight in New Documentary [Video]

monica lewinsky

A new documentary that is set to air next week on PBS will take a closer look at former President Bill Clinton and his affair with Monica Lewinsky. The new documentary shows how Clinton struggled with the decision to go public with the affair and features interviews from staffers who felt betrayed by the scandal.

The two-part (four hour) documentary will air in Britain and the United States on February 20th.

The Guardian reports that the new documentary shows that Clinton was constantly hounded by women. Clinton’s sexual appeal, and future problem, was foreshadowed during his run for Governor in Arkansas. And the problem became uncontrollable when he became President.

Paul Fray, Clinton’s former campaign manager, said:

“You got to understand that at one time there was at least 25 women per day coming through there trying to find him and I’d tell them he was out on the road. Lord it was bad. Bad, bad bad, bad bad.”

Betsey Wright, Mr Clinton’s trusted political aide, almost convinced Clinton not to run for President due to his past affairs. Writer Gail Sheely said that Wright sat down with Clinton before he announced his bid for the presidency with some serious concerns about women. Sheely said:

“The day before the press conference he was going to announce that he was going to run, Betsey Wright, his ferociously protective campaign manager, sat him down with a list of names of women and went through one after the other. ‘How many times? Where did you meet her? How likely is she to talk?” Clinton said for each name that ‘she’ll never say anything’, but Miss Wright replied: ‘But you don’t know that!’ Miss Wright supposedly told Clinton: ‘The problem is we’re not just talking about you, we’re talking about your wife, we’re talking about your child.’ She said I don’t think you can run.’”

But Clinton ran and eventually won the presidency in 1992. In 1998, he was embroiled in a scandal that would stain his presidency.

The Daily Mail reports that when the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, Dick Morris, one of Clinton’s closest advisers, urged the president to tell the American public the truth. Morris said:

“I said to him that the problem that presidents have is not the sin, it’s the cover-up and you should explore just telling the American people the truth… I said let me test it, let me run a poll, so I took a poll… and I called him back and I said they will forgive the adultery, but they won’t easily forgive that you lied.”

Clinton, however, decided to cover up the scandal for as long as he could.

Are you a fan of President Clinton? Do you think the Monica Lewinsky scandal stained his presidency? Will you be watching the new documentary on PBS?

    I like Bill Clinton, and I was mad when he lied. He gave the right the opening it needed. Without Lewinsky, George W. Bush would never have become President, and we wouldn't have the mess we have today. No deficit, no war in Iraq, maybe even no 9-11.

    the article is right; I could not care how many fat chicks he bangs. But for him to go on national TV and lie about it is unforgivable. It is like he thinks that I am too stupid to see through his thin lies.

    alot of respect was lost for Pres Clinton, when he made Tv announcemnt the "He never had sex with that women" Had he admitted it, I think there would have been more respect for him. I don"t care how many women thru themselves at him, he lied to the whole world….made our country the laughing stock with the world! Not to say anything about his wife and daughter, who was in college at the time………..

    It is always a disapointment when so many bright people with loads of leadership skills, have a flat side that forever stains their legasies. Clinton was the only Pres. in recent memory who actually did something to reform our welfare systems; who finished his term wlth a big govenment ssrplus; who talked to our would-be enemies rather than threaten them wlth nuclear power, etc., but he will be remebered by our generation as one who lied abut his pesonal life…how dumb a smart person can smetimes be… it is an un-erasable stain on his brilliant career.

    Lewinsky was the most ridiculous excuse for a coup that was ever invented, and if you think nuclear first-strike capability should change hands because of consensual sex then you are out of yr freakin mind. The damage to the life of Ms. Lewinski was bad enough before the world was nearly destroyed over this issue. There should be Sleep With Monica Day every year as a memorial to every living being that survived this process, or there should instead be a documentary about the abuse of the special prosecutor's office which wasted millions of dollars and countless FBI hours failing to even get their crap posted in Penthouse Forum. Happy Valentine's Day Monica!

    How could anyone have backed him even after they knew he had these problems. Especially when national security was at stake. He should have never run. "And the problem became uncontrollable when he became President" Refering to his sexual addiction.
    "The Guardian reports that the new documentary shows that Clinton was constantly hounded by women. Clinton’s sexual appeal, and future problem, was foreshadowed during his run for Governor in Arkansas." And don't tell me I'm taking this out of context these are direct quotes from this artical. He was a danger to the nation at the time and should have listened to his advisors not to run. If you say I'm just a Clinton hater you are wrong it's the jepardy he put this nation in. who knows what foriegn country knew about this and used it to blackmail him I can think of one possibility China it was he who put them in the most favored nation status category. Or how about when it was revealed he was the one that sent sensitive nuclear plans to china in my opinion he is the most dangerous president in the history of this country.There was no excuse for it.

    I welcome your right wing hate and ignorance. If you think Bush would have won that election had Clinton-Lewinsky never been exposed, you are really stupid. Gore actually got over a half a million more votes than Bush nationally, and there were plenty of people who voted for Bush because they wanted a change after the Lewinsky affair. Secondly, if you think we would have had the large deficit and that Gore and the Dems would have cut taxes and created that mess, you are really on drugs. There is no way Gore would have launched the Iraq War. He didn't have a bunch of Neo Cons around him who had this wet dream that getting rid of Saddam would cause democracy to flourish in the Arab world. As far as 9-11, Gore would not have ignored Richard Clarke's warnings. I didn't say there wouldn't have been a 9-11, but Gore being elected, no deficit and no Iraq War are pretty much accepted. And if you don't accept them, well, as Charly Vansel commented, HOW DID YOU GET THIS FAR IN LIFE, Jack? At least I don't hide behind some false name, and one that recalls a rapist and murderer.

  37. Robert Garwig

    George W. Bush became President by stealing the 2000 election in Florida AND insuring that the rigged election "stuck" by having the Supreme Court validate those results in Bush v. Gore. Clinton's affair was not actually a factor.

  38. Brett Stern

    Love how the hypocrites, I mean conservatives, come out of their holes when stories like this get posted. Clinton lied about cheating on his wife, which is what every single male on this planet would do if confronted with the same. Yes, I know he was President at the time, but didn't Bush lie about WMD's in Iraq? Oh, that's right, he just had bad intelligence given to him, so it really wasn't a lie. The hypocrisy never ends. I'll take Clinton's lie over Bush's as I don't recall it putting us at war.

  39. Rebecca Christiansen

    Miles, were you mad when he lied to the media or were you mad when he lied under oath to a grand jury? Were you mad when he lied to his friends or were you mad when he lied to his wife? You seem to operate under a lot of shades of gray. He lost his appeal when he "said" his administration would be transparent and it wasn't. Lying and oral sex – those are the hallmarks of the Clinton administration, oh wait and his wife stealing furniture when they moved out.
    One question though, if Gore wouldn't have ignored Richard Clarke's warnings – are you saying that it was okay Clinton turned a deaf ear to the guy? Somehow Gore is more insightful? Scary. But again, you are an attorney.

  40. Rebecca Christiansen

    Marc – I don't know, I've never lied under oath to a grand jury before – call me crazy.

  41. Rebecca Christiansen

    Okay, Chuck you know he didn't want to reform welfare and only did it because the Congress held the proverbial gun to his head – and he didn't just lie about his personal life, he violated his ethics when he lied to a grand jury. This is a big deal, a bit more than a lie.

    Love him, his presidency; respect his intelligence. His morals? Who cares? Did anyone care about the generations of Kennedy's? Some of their women didn't live to tell. Monica wouldn't be here to talk if she'd thrown herself at a Kennedy.

    You need to check your history. The housing bubble started in the Clinton years. It is true that Bush failed to foresee the results of the housing bubble but then again very few did. Of course had we not had the wars that Bush started Obama would never have been elected and Obama would not have had the chance to create the largest budget deficit in US history. Also the 9-11 attackers came the US in the Clinton years.

  44. Dennis Fink

    It"s ancient history, nobody really cares anymore and if ya ask me all it was was a political scam set up by politicians. Like the war of the roses except the dems and repubs. It's not like he"s the only man that's ever done somethiing like that Presidents before and I'm sure somewhere along the line after him will do the same thing, look how many politicians have been in the news for having affairs since ClintonSome with women and some with men. at least he did it the right way and went with woman and not a another male.

  48. Alessandro Machi

    Mike Kempel Explain how cheating on one's wife, and then lying in a court of law, are actually related. It would only matter if it was Hillary Clinton's attorney asking those questions, or, there was proof that the affair compromised the safety of the United States.

    And for those who say, but it happened in the Oval office. So it would have been ok if the president had had a bunch of secret service men follow him out of the oval office, to a motel, had his affair, then come back?

    So the final answer is, a man who gets hit on 25 times a day, whose wife might be out of town for weeks on end doing a book tour, should be as celibate as the rest of us? You or I will never know what it's like to have 20 women a day want you, so, lighten up.

    The Republicans were angry that Bill Clinton used the best ideas from either side of the political spectrum, that is why they led a witch hunt against the president even when HALF of the original 12republican witch hunters were having their own affairs at the time of their inquest.

    And unlike George Bush or Barack Obama, Bill Clinton honored his subpoena.

    Bill Clinton IS THE ONLY PRESIDENT in the past 80 years to leave office more popular than when he went in.

    Bill Clinton is THE ONLY PRESIDENT who actually reduced his annual budget deficit each and every year he was in office, the only president in the past 80 years to do that.

  49. Alessandro Machi

    grimmnir65, under what situation does someone have the right to force you to answer whether or not you had a consensual BJ outside of your marital union?

  50. Miles W. Rich

    Jeffrey Bowen – The housing Bubble did not start in the Clinton years. The Clinton years ended with the Dot.com bubble. While in Florida, real estate boomed in the 1990's, there was no bubble, there was no subprime lending etc, and Obama didn't created the Billion Dollar deficit. The Deficit was that high in 2008-2009, the year he came into office. The US Government does not run on a calendar fiscal year. Furthermore, Bush played accounting games with the deficit by financing the Iraq and Afghanistan wars off the budget. Rather than run the expenditures through the budget and increase the deficit, he did them off the budget. It would be like a corporation deciding not to run expenses through the income statement but just directly debiting retained earnings. It is obvious you do not understand accounting.

  51. Larry Sockeye Salmon

    For him to pull that crap in the Oval Office, the same office that a lot of good men died for, is what I don't get. If that office is not given respect, then what did these men die for?

  52. Alessandro Machi

    I wonder if Soros is involved in some way in this "documentary" coming out. I bet this was planned just in case the media could not thwart the cry for Hillary Clinton to replace Barack Obama. Soros is tight with PBS, I bet they planned this documentary a couple of years ago, just in case.

    What I have never understood is why Clinton ever fooled around with Monica Lewinsky when many, many other far more appealing women were readily available to him. Why did he risk losing so much for "That woman"?

  72. Sharon Spraker Barnes

    I doubt that Gore's defeat by Bush had anything to do with Clinton. All Gore needed to do was to win his home state and even Florida wouldn't have mattered. Actually, we left the party over Gore and have stuck with the GOP since. Since the Democrats initiated Freddie and Fannie's issuing mortgages to the credit unworthy and blocked Bush from fixing the problem, I think the problem is at worst split equally with both parties. However, O has made it much worse with his extravagant spending, buying votes and payng off contributors.

    clinton is a liar, period, a smart liar but a full blown lying liar. He had the title of honorable and was commander and chief but I take great offense to him being allowed to be a president It frankly, embarrasses me. For people that still like him after the blatant lies, it proves they are totally selfish. They only like him because his actions benefited them. These people could care less about the country or ethics or rights. If that is you then think about it and think about your values. If you were a welfare mom you liked Clinton why? You felt you got better benefits from him. Do you like him cause he treated women so well? Hahahahah. Or did you like him for the $$ and screw every one else- selfish. think about it.

    This is the president and his or her actions should be above reproach not above the law. Remember that Clinton was impeached! But the republicans we to scarred to follow through with it. Was it that the timing of the impeachment would have allowed Gore the opportunity to run for 2 terms? This is not the only thing Clinton lied about, he just got caught. White water, missing people in arkansas, girls and girls and girls all lies.

    Why is it OK for Clinton to lie and not me? What makes him more important then me or any other american? Do presidents think they are God?

    What I don't get is if he is such a stud why he married hillary, she is not the best looking but then again neither is monica.

    Clinton did lower the deficit and was helped by Reagan's actions and the stock market as well as the internet explosion (Gores invention hahahahaha). So he was smart there. And bush jacked up the deficit with the war. Both correct and Bush said "this will be a 10 year war" and I fault him for never putting the cost of the war in the budget but Obama knew this and I really wish he would have made some changes.

    Unfortunately, Mr Rich (lawyer), a lot of selfish and self centered people are in the US and when clinton got BJs and lied about it they didn't care or liked it so they voted for clinton.

    I have never cheated on girlfriend or a test and the one thing I stole (when I was 9 or 10) was a candy bar and I returned it 2 weeks later. I couldn't live with my self. so there are people that are honest and try really hard to be fair and honest. Unfortunately they are normally not lawyers. GO OJ GO!

    I hope in your practice you attempt to do what is right and not use the law for hiding wrong doings and evil things, that is what selfish people do and they help destroy our nation.

    It was 1995 when housing prices started to outpace inflation. July of 1997 was when the Taxpayer Relief Act went into affect lowering the standards for a home mortgage. This allowed people to buy homes priced much higher then they did in the past. If you were to look at a graft of housing prices verses standard inflation you will see where they really take off in 1997 (Clinton years) and continue though the Bush years.

    I think Bill Clinton should just shut up now. It is water under the bridge and why rehash a scandal…it doesn't look good for anyone. It never was that he had an affair…it was that he carried it out in the white house and in governmental offices. It was that he lied…first, last, and always. You shouldn't have to ask your aids for advice relating to dishonesty with the American people. If he could lie about that, he could therefore lie about anything and his word was not to be trusted…ergo, neither was he. Now he is making speeches and traveling all over like nothing ever happened.
    He had no taste. When Kennedy carried on, he did so without sticking it in people's faces. Also, when he wasn't so great at his private affairs, he had the class not to broadcast it or cast aspersions on his family. Clinton has no class and doesn't seem to mind dragging through his dirty laundry for another swish or two.

    Mike, my friend, you are part of the problem!

    It’s people like you that make excuses for a man who could not control his sexual behavior. The problem with Mr. Clinton is that his sin goes to the core of what is wrong with the party that I once belonged to. The Democrats will doing anything, accept anyone, call anything that is pervers is ok, condone demented -anti-culture -anti-religion, anti-American behavior and call freedom. Democrats will sleep with the enemy, accept pornography, turn a blind eye to PAC corruption, and betray the very people they should be helping. People like you are ok if jobs go over seas and we are invaded in illegal’s. People like think that a marriage of Bob and Dave falls under the same natural law as a marriage between Steve and Diane. The bottom line is that Mr. Clinton stinks. He played everyone fool who defended his claim that oral sex is not sex. How stupid we have become. I could not believe what I heard when he pointed his finger at the screen and said that ‘I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” — AND PEOPLE BELIEVED IT —–!

    He knew, and rightly so, that they idiot masses would stand by him cause they want a free hand out. History will be kind to some of his policies and achievements, but history will judge him as a creep and a person of poor character. Mike good buddy.. find some balls and say it like it is.

    If people Bill Clinton is the best we can do as a country.. we are in deep doo-doo.

    Can't help but respond to this one. Whitney Houston was a drug abusing (and could care less) person. She chose to use drugs right up until her last breath in the bath tub. Of course, she was bombed and there were empty pill bottles all over. Do I feel sorry for this woman – NOOOOOOO. She chose to abuse drugs. She also chose to be a bitch to everyone around her. A real chip off the shoulder drug abuser. Like she said "she's her own worst devil".

  142. Jeremy Hogue

    The problem isn't that Bill Clinton had an affair. If we booted every politician who ever had an affair, we would have nobody left in Washington. That actually sounds like a good idea now that I think about it. The problem is that Clinton was having an affair with a woman who has been subpoenaed in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit. Lewinsky and Clinton both denied the affair under oath. Hence, the charges against him of perjury and obstruction of justice.

    Mr. Rich, I think you're right. Clinton's "STAIN" on the Presidency caused a cascade of trouble for America, probably elected George W. Bush, and who knows what. However, his Sec/State, Albright, tried to push Israel around, that caused a lot of trouble here as well. Lewinsky then walked into administer the humiliation, the worst ever suffered by a national leader in modern memory. THE WORST part of it was the Democratic votes that blocked his being removed from office. Those scums.

  145. John Francis Haley

    He lied to the American people. He did untold damage to the respect for the office of President. When are people going to ignore political parties and just say, "that is not right, and he/she needs to go." To blame a young/naive intern is the height of hypocrisy and stupidity. She was innocent. Their are Federal laws against what he did (supervisor having sex with his subordinates). He should have taken his medicine like a man and resigned. When he did not, he should have been impeached by a seemingly corrupt Congress.

    Clinton is a Arkansas POS lying garbage. He was impeached for lying under oath and the Democratic Congress garbage spun it into a private matter. Anyone that lies under oath goes to jail.

    I agree with you as well, Marc. I think the biggest problem most of us who supported Clinton had was dealing with the lies. I honestly don't care who he "had sexual relations" with, although I agree that our commander and chief should have some morals. However, George W's morals were so far below Clinton's that I simply don't understand why anyone voted for him. (He did steal FL) I especially don't understand why anyone would vote for the man twice. And why didn't his drug use and DUI's (not on his record cuz the cops took him to daddy so daddy's little boy could one day ruin our country) come up on the media during his elections? This country's media had a field day with Clinton's indiscretion, but NOTHING about George W's outright drug and alcohol abuse! I don't trust the media to be truthful WAY more than I would distrust Clinton.

    Clinton would have tripped up with some other woman at some other point – it was just a matter of time given his long track record, but in the whole scheme of things he walked away barely scathed. It was Lewinsky who was villified and raked over the coals as is the case in our patriarchal society. He did manage to leave the public with a couple choice soundbites though – "I didn't inhale" and "I did not have sexual relations with that woman". These are priceless and give good insight into the man.

    Why does Bill Clinton's wife and child and the general public have to be subjected to a re-showing of this event. We have already lived through this once, isn't that enough? I like Bill Clinton and by golly, if he could run again for President, he would have my vote and no I am not a staunch Democrat. I normally vote for issue at hand. The mess this country is in is not all George W. Bush responsibility, we all have a hand in this mess by keep electing the same people and letting them make a career in public office. There needs to be a limit on years one person can serve! Then they need to get out and get to work again in their chosen profession.

The american people forget how good he was and the better america he made.Exacty, he wasnt doing anything millions of men have done, and lets not forget all the way back to Kennedy,,, and who knows, maybe Washington did it too. Women are assertive and agressive and what man is going to say no to a little fling if its staring you in the face,,, common, let me know ho many of you men with money hasn't yet had an affair, or left your wife because of another women, or just had a little one time thing with some bimbo. Monica is a bimbo and so are the other little tramps that tramped through the White house, boy if those walls could talk.

    I love how this article portrays him as a poor, lowly victim, LOL! "Women constantly hounded him" and the "problem became uncontrollable." Bull sh! t. HE became uncontrollable. And another thing….he didn't "struggle with the decision to go public." His a$$ got caught. He didn't HAVE a choice. ROFL!

    Some men have extra appeal but one must control it in a position like Presidency of the United States.

    So, Clinton was such a chic magnet and he couldn't beat the women off.But, what about how Slick Willy had Arkansas state police hounding women for aAdate with Willy.as usual the liberal media cannot tell the f***ing truth!

    I guess alot of ppl cant read Jennifer.. He made his choice to lie to everyone.. Just like saying he smoked pot but didn't INHALE!!! Just like oral sex is not intercourse WTFever !! I dont give a rats ass whose sucking him off but to sit there and tell everyone he did not have sexual relations with Monica is nothing more than bulllsht

    These comments are not just gossip; they are sick ruminations and hate mongers. What a waste of life & talent. If you don't have anything nice or positive to offer, go out and DO a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS. Like all politicians don't LIE-get real! God Bless us all. Let's all start focusing on what we can do for our country and for others, and I don't mean giving someone a fish, I mean, since we are all so smart here, teach them how to fish! Give them something they/we can aspire to- This "hate/blame" talk gets us no where but going around and around. LET'S STEP UP and step FORWARD. Take action not just talk.

    Miles,, heck with these people..you are right. Spot on. But the bottom line, if the people have jobs, the budget is in a surplus, the War on Drugs starts to show cracks in its' armor, Americans are admired the world over;With little threat of a terrorist attack…I'm fine with the President getting a little on the side. Look at Kennedy..he did Marylin Monroe..Matter a fact, he AND his brother did her..and we were able to avert the Cuban Missile Crisis; Is there any doubt, had that happened during the Bush years, we would all be a pink, misty part of the atmosphere now?

    First of all we have been through tis once, he may have lied , but I don't understand, why he should have had to answer anything about his personal life to any one, just because he was our president? so I guess if any one of u had been put on tv under the gun , have u cheated on your spouse , have u ever looked at another, or strayed from your spouse where ya need to be u would answer truthfully, remember where I come from if its in your heart you cheated , i just don't think anyone should have to discuss thier personal relationships with the public, strangers, except to God an thier spouses. just don't think its fair to air all this crap again iam not a judge an don't want to be, hope you all are judged as you are judging now Bless you Clinton family stay strong! an Thank you Mr Clinton for being the best President in my time! Hope one Day I will get tell u in person , so what's next we going to bring back Jimmy Lee Swaggart , an tear his life up too, ill bet not we just going to single out Mr Clinton, ill leave that all up to you who like to judge. that's like giving the death sentance, and killing them , then that's not good enough so dig em up an kill them again. that's what's wrong with this country we cant move on.

    I am as far right as you can get and I liked Bill Clinton.Compare Clinton to Obama and then talk about damage to America.

    Oh for goodness sake…..how many years ago was that? I truly believe we have too many other pressing issues in our country to deal with, rather than some idiot that wants to re-hash old history. Althought Bill Clinton lied back then, for which I do NOT condone, he now continues his great humanitarian work and Monica what's her name…who cares. Please everyone, there's so much positive that can be done for our country and people today, why cause turmoil. Very Sad.

    There are some men that have a aura around them that all they have to do is crook their finger and say "my room or yours" and women follow, Presiden Clinton is one of those men. I witness it first hand when I met him twice in Australia in 2002, not that he crooked his finger, but if he had I'd have followed him!

    Clinton, who had a law degree, and taught law once , lied to congress under oath! And He KNEW He was going to get caught , because the FBI used a rape kit on monica's dress and congress made Clinton give a sperm sample, just like rapists have too! How stupid to lie!

  192. Richard Dean Jones

    Clinton was told by the CIA THREE times that they could send a cruise missile in and kill Bin Laden, and Clinton said NO! He did not want any moslem civilians killed. As a result THOUSANDS of American civilians were killed in 911, and the economy has been destroyed by the after effects! Thanks, Billy!

  193. Randall D Ayers

    I didn't like it that he lied. But I always felt, yes, he lied to a question he should never have been asked. Anyone commenting here could ask themselves, "If I were put in the same position, would I lie or come clean?" Don't we all keep our personal lives separate from our professional lives? Did it affect a priest's ability to perform during mass, hear confessions and administer last rights to the dying when earlier he had a rendezvous with an alter boy? Apparently not since congregations always seem so shocked when they hear the revelations. Granted we have put priests in prison because they broke the law.
    I see Clinton in a similar light, but the only law that has been proven to be broken was his perjury. But again, he gave a dishonest answer to a question he never should have been asked. It's called CYA. Any Washington politician could expound on that subject, I'm sure. Disgusting? Yes. Affect his ability to run a country? Totally different animal. Stain his presidency? Unfortunately, even after all the good he did and continues to do, yes.

  194. Carrie Ferguson

    Clinton did great things for our country. Like what he did or not it really had NO bearing on how he ran the country. So he lied… if JFK had been put in the same spot he would have lied too, then gone to confession. Naive? People who think this was about what he did on the stand- when really the whole thing was carefully planned out to bring him down. Who keeps a dress with "stains" just in case? In case of what- wash it! There was a plan….

  195. Peter Norton

    What you people don't mention is how Clinton and JFK got away with their affairs but they make a big thing about Cain and his supposed affairs. And before you note that Cain 'lied' at least he isn't the President lying: I never met that woman, like Clinton did.

    The article raises the question, "do you think the Monica Lewinsky scandal stained his presidency? This was not the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, It was the Clinton scandal. While he stained the Institution of the Presidency, all she has to show for it is a stained blue dress and a life that's been ruined. She was a young intern, seduced by a low life scumbag with the morals of a jackal. In the years that have followed the mainstream media has treated this vermin, like a wise old statesman, but he is and always has been a predator, a liar and a legend in his own mind.

    Well, he made it very public. Stood up before God and everyone and said "I did not have sex with that woman". If it's noone's business he should have kept his lying mouth shut. By the way Todd, there are many, many people that have not cheated on their spouses – with that said – I guess one wouldn't have to lie about anything then either. No wonder you like him so much, your moral character seems flawed.

    In these times of Elliot Spitzer, Larry Craig, David Vitter, Newt Gingrich, etc. the Monica Lewinsky scandal is tame in comparison. Do the math! President Clinton was born in 1946. Monica Lewinsky was born in 1973. Being romantically pursued by a younger woman makes a mature man feel younger, and if she's skilled at fellatio, it really IS a male sexual fantasy come true. Feminist Germaine Greer commented in the late 1960s that Playboy was giving "the illusion that fifty year old men are entitled to f**k fifteen year old girls… and display their girls as if they were a commodity." In this case, it was a woman almost thirty years younger than the president, and with political ambitions of her own.

    Clinton should have just fessed up instead of lying about it and I believe that if he had not lied he may have still been able to continue with his term. And my opinion is that Monica Lewinsky is an idiot for the rest of her life she will always be known as the woman who was caught with Clinton…
    Gingrich, an Evangelist Christian, had an affair while married and would like his marriage to be an opened one. What does that say about Presidential candidates? There are no press releases about Obama having affairs because he is busy trying to get bills passed!

    Clinton's service men were here in our capitol during his presidency. My husband asked if they respected Clinton. They said let me put it this way. They opened the presidential limo and showed him a place where the upholstery was ripped and had a hole. They said that Clinton had sliced the presidential seal off of the car and told them to go give it to some woman that he passed while driving and invite her to meet him. They said that that kind of stuff happened everyday! Monica became a scapegoat for one man's life long disrespect for women. But like most narcissistic sociopaths he got away with it because he believed his own lie. He never has felt remorse and he never will. Hilary stayed for her own political agenda. She was ambitious and rode his coattail to her current job! These two are all about power plays! Bush never made such a mockery of the office as they did! Bush had to deal with the single worst attack in our modern history. He had to make our people face the facts that freedom doesn't come cheap! He didn't make terrorists he just shed light on their existence and showed them what we are made of. Our people today are just lazy and ungrateful for what they have. Someone has always taken care of them! Now it is time to stand for something but they are too entitled to care!

IT WAS AN INTERNAL MATTER! THere have been OTHER presidents who have had more worse affairs. this was just a ridiculous time. He been a humanitarian in his post presidency. better than any president. hes considered one of the best presidents in the past 60 years. The ONLY democrat in 60 years to win re election. He did a lot of good in office and out. Hillary is next in line to be president. I don't care what she has done. Shes the only women in politics with the credentials to run this country and make sure policies are past. Obama I doubt will win re election. I cannot believe we choose another guy in the white house over a women. But only time will tell.. If hillary doesn't run in 2016, democrats will have a power vaccum. Also DEMOCRATS should be SAYING SHE CAN HAVE IT IN 2016, because in 08, democrats disrespected John Mccain. If you did that, don't be asking for hillary.

    Slick Willie existed long before HE was Elected President!
    It's a nickname given to HIM in Arkansas!
    Although HE is and should be given due credit for the addition of the sexual act term "Getting a Lewinsky"!
    Knew HIM in Arkansas, Knew HIM as President and KNOW HIM now operating the private slush fund that HE created called The Clinton Foundation!
    Some spots never change dog!
    Was HE really concerned with HIS Wife, Daughter, the people of this Nation when HE dropped HIS pants in the Oval Office for Monica to service HIM! I really believe that HE thought that if ever caught, HE could LIE HIS way out of it like HE had done before!
    When HE was caught, HIS prime concern was telling the best LIES that HE could attempting to cover up the truth but it didn't work this time!
    "Put a stain on HIS Presidency"? I like that comment in the article. How appropriate to the heart of HIS Presidency!
    Didn't trust HIS word then and STILL don't believe anything that HE might utter, for thru history HE has proved that it would be totally Self Serving in how it would benefit HIM!
    Period.
    End of discussion.

    I know the Clinton's very-very well, worked on one of their very first campaign's in Arkansas against (R)Frank White, who was very possibly the worst governor in the history of the country. The Clinton's turned Arkansas around in almost all categories, and when he became president, he did a fantastic job in that job also. Ask me if I care whether or not some ho's wanted to have sex with him, likely for various personal agenda's and reasons? Wow, he lied, maybe even lied under oath in a partsan right wing witch hunt, big woo hoo. What would you rather he said, yeah, I had sex with her, I have sex with many women, my bad? They didn't want to hear the truth, they were on a witch hunt for political reasons, just like you still to this day, in spite of all known reality, can't tell some of these right wing fanatics, that Obama was born in the US.

    A president trying to hide something which impinges on constitutional or political issues like the Watergate is one thing, but hiding a personal embarrassment which the public shouldn't pry into in the first place is quite another. The problem was with the American system which required ordinary mortals (yes, even American presidents are ordinary mortals) to be angels or superhuman. Clinton was just a man with a healthy appetite for women. It is a miracle that with his looks, youth at the time and position, we didn't hear of more affairs. What the American media and people were interested in was lurid entertainment whether he confessed it early enough or not. Dragging the matter all up again is just looking for more of the same entertainment. Hill
    ary, one of the few people who have the right to pry, has since forgiven her husband and moved on. Why not the media? Shame on you PBS!

    Why are some people getiing so upset Clinton lied? The goverenment does it all the timeand we know it. Every president has blatantly lied and has had some fancy speech, written by someone else of course, to get Him into the clear or to justify the actions on his part. We can all scream about what Clinton did, who cares that he got into a thing with some woman and lied, for the most part anyone is going to lie when they get caught cheating. Look at all the things Bush did and flat out lied about it. There are so many they can't even be put on here and to make it better he lies about lying about them.

His personal life has nothing to do with his abilities to run the country. Maybe most of you should spend a couple of years in other countries to see what they think of us for some of our outlandish ideas and how the rest of the world lives.

    When Clinton pointed his finger at me (and at the rest of the electorate) and said, "I did not have sex with that woman", I gave up a life-long membership in the Democratic Party. Such an arrogant, bold-faced liar has no business being President of the United States. And now we have another one. His lies are not about sex, but power, aimed toward the manipulation of people who vote strictly on emotion.

    Bill Clinton, President or impeached now is and was a married man. Why do women or men not respect the marriages of others? The ones who go after married persons are to blame. Marriages need the support of families and community. We have become a decadent society and the United States has now fallen in many many ways. This is just another example of how evil is working among us. "Don't let the devil get a stronghold." God Bless! Pamela Bunting Lewis 2/15/12.

    I think someone in that office must have impeccable integrity and morality. If you are of a weak moral character you are likely to do things while President that are not in the best interest of the United States. I personally liked Bill and he is of extreme intelligence (photographic memory as well) but this was unacceptable. I always felts sorry for Hilary and Chelsea for having to go through that embarrassment.

How can you say something with the word sex in it isn't sex? Don't quite get that. No, kids get their attitudes from many places. I just mentioned one.

    Does the fact that he was the President and is supposed to represent a higher standard escape those of you leaning to the left? Did he lie about the affair or didn't he? He did. I guess sex with an intern in the office (let alone the oval office) is ok now. How about sex with a co-worker in the office? Forced sex that turns consensual? Rape? Where exactly do we draw the line? Once it is drawn…will we re-draw the line because someone is powerful?

    Could Bill Clinton have prevented the "waste of taxpayer money" by admitting the affair and moving on? Yes. You would think an attorney would have less sympathy for someone who lied under oath. I realize it happens all the time, but people commit crimes all the time as well. Should we allow someone to steal because they're hungry? Does the letter of the law mean anything?

    Are you all kidding me? There has never been a politician in history who has not lied, cheated or played both sides against the middle to get what he wants. They as a group are not trustworthy, I don't care who they were or are for that matter…

    What's even more astounding is that he lied about Jennifer Flowers, and Hillary backed him up, on national television, and that it didn't cost him the nomination. And then, despite his philandering with Lewinsky in the White House, Hillary hung by her man, setting a terrible example for women everywhere. And the idiot public went on to elect Hillary to the Senate, and now she's Secretary of State. Good lord, what has happened to this country?

    I don't care about his sex life.

    @ Miles W. Rich – get a life. We have more important things to worry about than where he put his c**k so many years ago.

    Bill Clinton's legacy will go down as being one of the most accomplished administrations in U.S. history! Affairs aside, what he did for this country will be revered for generations to come. Not even mentioning what he has done since he left office…and yes I like President Bill Clinton. I'm just answering the question that opened the chatting. No gossip…it's all bullshit meaningless jabber.

    I like Bill Clinton and will always do. Very few men will tell the truth at the first time in that situation (if any). Too many women were interested in a good looking man who coupled with his intelligence was the president of the most powerfull country in world. It would be too much preassure on anybody with all those qaulities not to fumble. Most of us have forgiven him and even his family which mattered most did forgive him. We should be tired of letting this family go through this ordeal again. That film should be seen as an entertainment and not another indictment on Clinton and his family. I may watch it out of curiosity and not for any judgement. We need more movies on how the Republicans and George Bush brought the most powerful country in the world to situation we are now.

    This may come as a surprise to many people, but here goes. EVERYBODY LIES! Whew, now I've said it, I just wish Mr. Clinton had kept right on lying. I for one didn't want to know any of this and I still don't.

  253. Steven Fogel

    He didn't "struggle with coming out with it", he tried to cover it up, then lied about it under oath when confronted with it, and you lamestream media hacks defended him and his lies, and attacked the people trying to find out the truth. In other words, you Democrats were complicit in lying and covering for him, just as you lie and cover for every other Democrat, because you're just as corrupt as he was. You even went so far as to say that lying is OK cause it saves people's feelings. The truth about your corruption and lies hurts doesn't it? But your partisan stupidity never ceases to amaze.

    Yes remember folks, sex scandals are only important when they can be used by liberal Democrats to derail a Republican (see Herman Cain). However, Democrat sex scandals are "partisan personal attacks that happened years ago, so just forget about it and quit being such a prude and Puritan". That's the double standard of the Demonrat Party, you must have high standards of conduct for their opponents, and no standards of conduct for them. Please make a note of it.

    What a great example of the GBDS (George Bush Derangement Syndrome). I haven't seen a patient this bad in a long time. By the way, your President Obummer have made things far worse over the last 4 years.

    I think Bill Clintons REPEATED bad behavior is in-excusable. What a poor example he is. I can cut a lot of slack for folks messing up, but to "do it" repeatedly indicates a definite "learning disability".

    My brother,looking back in history amounts to looking forwarded u do that u re assess yourself and determine where u faltered there ppls learn and make corrections is an indictment again.

  259. Vicki Corum

    How long? How many years do we hang on to this kind of "news"? I understand he had a moment of eye squinting and heavy breathing and then he lied. He was taken out as a result of this. Anything that he accomplished during his term was completely overshadowed by this tawdry moment in office (and I mean that literally). His reputation was tarnished, his family suffered, and on and on and on. This was what, 15 years ago? Come on folks..lets let it go and move on. I for one don't care to watch anything about this episode in our history. I got so sick and tired of listening to the non-stop debating and discussing of this when it happened that..well for me it's just ancient history and time to move on.

    A gigilo who is president and an ho for an aide………………….I use to think Bill/Monica embarrassed the US but Odama makes them look like high school lovers in the back seat.

  261. Will Ugwu

    Yeah, I think it is more about money now than any other thing. People just want to make money off that. I do not blame them, I only wish healed wounds would not be opened again.

  262. Ralph DeWitt

    Well I have to say that while I don't condone that type of behavior, what President Clinton is guilty of so are most of the other presidents down through history. Who is your favorite president in any era whom ever you choose I would dare say we could find that HE was guilty of the same thing. Look at America's favorite president John F Kennedy and his brothers all of them guilty. Johnson, Ike, Truman, Adams, Jefferson you name him he did it. The only thing different is that We were a nation united then and our media didn't report these scandals and run our presidents down because that makes us look weak as a nation and allows the rest of the world know and see our weakness and therefore they attack us. I don't like the politics in our country or the openness we have with the world, we need to stick together as a nation no matter if it is our guy in office or someone else's, He is still our President and yes we as a nation need to be aware of the truths and make informed decisions when voting to make sure we pick the man who really is for the people not for big business and commerce. We need a person who will uphold our constitution while taking care of our own people who are hurting and in need. We help all the other nations out so if we are going to stop giving and helping we need to start abroad not at home. We need to police our own citizens and make sure that there isn't fraud going on and that all are treated equally. One flat tax for all, if I pay 30% of my pay in taxes so should the richest people in our country it is only fair, this would eliminate a lot of problems and get rid of our national debt. Why do rich people feel they shouldn't give their fair share? Why do we worry about the Presidents sex life when there are so many more problems to contend with?

    I have found it interesting that more men have been offended by Clinton's actions than women. I don't care about his sex life nor do I care about anyone else's. It is time the media stay out of people's personal lives.
    Kennedy's sex life wasn't discussed much until long after he died. Eisenhower and FDR also had affairs outside the marriage. The media used to know how to respect other peoples' personal lives. Bill Clinton's problem should have only been between him and Hillary. There are much more important issues to report on in the news.

    Monica Lewinsky was a naive 21 year old seduced by the leader of the free world. She's caught ALL the crap for it. She is a human being with feelings and was manipulated by a man with a lot of power. This scandal needs to be laid to rest already. She deserves to have a life. She is a beautiful woman and this B.S. should not define her as a person. I don't condone extramarital activities, but it sometimes happens. Life gets messy. LET IT GO!

  265. Gary Sartori

    I couldn't care less. The man had some obvious moral failings, and to me at least, I'll never fully trust him, but I will not watch this all over again. It happened 15 years ago, it's over and done with, and it's time to move on. But I will say one thing, all these conservatives who went after Clinton only to find themselves doing the same thing, are a raging bunch of hypocrites!

  266. Sandy Hollis

    I'd much rather have a President who lied about having sex with an aide than a dumba$$ president who lies to the American people about a country [Iraq] having WMD just to start a war to steal their natural resources…a war that had absolutely nothing to do with 911. Thousands of Americans killed, hundreds of thousands maimed and wounded who we'll be paying and caring for for the rest of they're lives and trillions of our tax dollars wasted on bushes complete incompetence.

    BTW, Miles W. Rich…you are spot on. I'd take Bill Clinton over bush any day of the week.

  267. Brian Shields

    like most presidents he was backed by corporate interests and did their bidding. he brought in nafta and did a deal with the world trade organization which led to the predicament we are now in. like a time release pill it didn't effect us so much then as later.

  268. Diana Nicoleta Liu

    Old story… and boring, something else you don't have to talk.
    Leave Bill Clinton, is too old for this now, I don't want him to make a heart attack.

    What is this going to accomplish? Make her some money or what, it over leave it in the past.

  270. Anne Marie DelaVega Duque

    Every president, like everyone has a past. Clinton was a great president and that is the plain truth. I am not even a Democrat and I can say that clearly. Look at Hollywood..we still watch their movies and give them praise and all of our money. however our tax dollars pay for the President and our voluntary monies pay for the movies. Check your conscience. Who is easier to criticize?

    I don't think it made him a bad President, but I do think he showed very little class. I feel like Ronald Reagan was the end of an era where the Presidency actually was respected.

    Struggled with the decision to go public with the affair? Really? That's what his question define "is" was about about? Him struggling with going public? He is nothing more than a liar and has lowered the bar even more than it was in that cesspool called Washington! Prior to his nonsense we may have sent our son's and daughters there to be interns but now thanks to Bills "struggles" we know far better. Thanks Bill now just please climb back under your rock, I have no interest in seeing, or hearing anything about you, or your family ever again!

    We hadn't had a truly articulate speaker as our leader since JFK and then he had to lie on national TV while wearing a tie Monica gave him. Disappointed, oh yeah. Whenever a president smirks while responding to a serious question it's time to be severely disappointed. I was. I had admired and respected former Pres. Clinton until then. I also blame the hypocritical press for changing their policy on reporting personal details about our presdents. We have a National Enquirer type mainstream press these days that baulks at nothing, even those things we don't need to know and don't want to know. I honestly can't decide what's worse, the caliber of candidates who aspire to lead us or the press that wallows in the mud these days. There is no respect for privacy and no embarassment at the level of disclosure or outright fabrications on the part of today's media.

    Each generation blames the last. Your actually funny Scott. Have picture of Havana Bill by your bed? I didn't say he taught them how to do it.. He did make it ok because, duh, it's not sex. I did not have relations. As a kid, you think you've been lied to, then it's ok. Hey, the Prez did it even when he was the Gov. He didn't teach them anything but he made it acceptable plus when I hear cigars and red dress, now I cringe. That dress is still around. Ah man. we made this dude prez. Our fault. He takes a hit on the sex Scott. We DID not hear any kid say it was normal and not sex until him. Don't care what you say or don't think. He did it. Bush just screwed up the country. Yeah, hate him too.

    "Hounded by women"… Please! She was what – 21 years old? Who was the predator here? What private sector CEO would have kept his job after being found out having an affair with a 21 yr old intern?

    I just feel sorry for Monica Lewinsky… she was young and infatuated with the President. His misguided indiscretion has drawn her into a life-time of unwanted publicity… just not good!

  280. Patrick Murphy

    I agree Andy – Bill was an AWESOME President! Sadly, it took G.W.Bush less than a year to burn through the Clinton-ear surplus and put our country back into debt (along with loosening the reigns on the banking industry which got us into the even bigger mess we'll be struggling with for years/decades to come).
