Monica Lewinsky, in a Vanity Fair piece on her life outside of the public eye. This whole piece is really well-written and made me realize two things: (1) Monica Lewinsky is only a year older than I am, and she was a 21-year-old BABY when she had the affair with Bill Clinton. I’ve seen President Clinton speak once or twice, and I am here to tell you that the man is extremely charismatic and personable; I can easily imagine that it would have been difficult to resist his attentions. (2) Monica Lewinsky is smart, and she seems like someone I’d really like. (via bethanyactually)
I have a friend that staffed Bill for an entire month during Hillary’s ‘08 primary campaign. He echoes this sentiment in much more detail, by saying you would just know when Bill would walk into a room. The whole dynamic of it would just change dramatically. Men with that much charisma do what they can to take advantage of that charisma when it suits their appetites.
I love Bill for the President he was, but just like JFK I’ll always be honest that I would never have wanted to marry the man.
Hillary and Jackie have a strength that is unparalleled and full hearts.
But the fact that we still call this the Lewinsky scandal instead of the Clinton Impeachment Scandal is incrediby telling about our culture.
can we just start a movement where we go to male politicians events and we ask them sexist questions like “if you are elected who will take care of the kids” and “what designer are you wearing tonight” “do you think that your stunted and constipated male emotions will affect your decision making”
Yes!!! I’m down!!! Can we start with Dan Patrick???
