2016 presidential race: Why Hillary fears Monica

Monica Lewinsky has returned, and it’s a good thing. She’s a smart, thoughtful woman who deserves to be able to take her life back from those who prefer she stay silent, and stay away.

I’m sure there’s nothing more irritating to Hillary Clinton than those you use and abandon who actually survive and return, determined to tell their story.

Ms. Lewinsky has re-emerged with an essay she’s written for Vanity Fair, which appears in its June issue, but excerpts released on the Web are already causing Mrs. Clinton’s supporters to go ballistic.

In the article, Ms. Lewinsky says it’s time to stop “tiptoeing around my past — and other people’s futures.”

It’s bad enough when a man is a sex addict. It’s even more obscene when the one woman who could stop him chooses instead to enable her predator husband because it will get her something she wants.

“I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

Good for her. She knows there will be a price to pay, because the same rotten core that drives Mrs. Clinton, compelling her to enable her husband all these years, has only become more craven.

The reaction to her article by other women in media has been nothing short of disgusting and shameful. Yet, it is another indication that Mrs. Clinton and her team of media bullies know full well an open discussion of her role in trying to wipe out Ms. Lewinsky when she was a 22-year-old is still relevant because it reveals not the “tough” Hillary, but the misogynist Hillary.

Think about it. You’re married to a man with no pants. He uses women like other people use washcloths. But you need him to get the power you think you’re entitled to, so you help in destroying the credibility and lives of anyone who exposes your husband for what he is.

It’s bad enough when a man is a sex addict. It’s even more obscene when the one woman who could stop him chooses instead to enable her predator husband because it will get her something she wants.

That’s cold, and malignantly narcissistic.

The bullying of Ms. Lewinsky begins again because she dares to be present, dares to defend herself, dares to take her life back. Nothing says “war on women” more than the feminist liberal Democratic hero having her feminist liberal Democratic media sycophants go on the offensive to destroy an inconvenient woman.

It’s obvious Mrs. Clinton has her eyes on the White House. Despite her health problems. Despite her disastrous (and equally unaccomplished) turn as secretary of state (except for certain notable events, such as being photographed gulping down beer at a bar in Cartagena, Colombia, and dirty dancing with another woman in South Africa).

Despite being in charge of State during the murders in Benghazi, for some reason Mrs. Clinton thinks she deserves a promotion to the presidency.

The arrogance of these people was only made worse when they got away with mercilessly attempting to destroy Ms. Lewinsky’s life after the White House intern was revealed as Mr. Clinton’s then-current fling back in 1998.

What did the feminist wife of the feminist president do? She participated in the organized effort to cast Ms. Lewinsky as a deranged stalker.

This is why Ms. Lewinsky is important, and why Mrs. Clinton should be afraid of what she has to say. Ms. Lewinsky survived their attack, and is no longer a naive and shell-shocked (and star-struck) 22 year-old girl. She is now a 40-year-old woman who likely understands more than ever the larger significance of what those people did to her.

Why this matters isn’t because of policy differences or partisanship. This is about character, simple decency and whether we want the best people among us as leaders determining our future, or the worst.

When we look away from the treatment of a Monica Lewinsky, and then elevate those who reveal such a reprehensible attitude toward life, we eventually pay a price. Such soulless leaders deliver a regime that somehow allows the murder of four Americans, covers it up, lies to the families of the fallen, fails (or refuses) to capture those responsible, and stonewalls Congress.

As a conservative feminist I, too, want a woman in the White House. But not just any woman. I want a president who loves this country more than herself. I want a president who genuinely views the American people as valuable, important and worthy of respect, who disables the predators in our midst who threaten our future, and actually understands the “difference it makes.”

In her article, Ms. Lewinsky says she wants to speak out against bullying and its destructive force. It would be important and more than appropriate to include exposing Hillary Clinton as the dangerous bully she is in that important objective.

I doubt that Hillary fears Monica.  Once a skank, always a skank.  Too bad she didn't learn any manners in the last almost 20 years.  Any humiliation that Monica has suffered, she brought on her self.

Nope, I think Hillary is a strong, positive influence on today's women.  I admire Hillary.    Monica on the other hand is the opposite.

The parties to blame are Monica and Bill- I think most reasonable people accept that fact.

I doubt HC fears ML-

This disturbs me as much as seeing Hillary (or any woman) referred to as a skank.

At the time this happened, Monica was 21 and an intern, and being hit on by "the most powerful man in the world". That's a lot to deal with- I'm pretty sure I would've fallen for it at the time. Then you could refer to me as a skank. Yippee!

You know who was mainly at fault in this situation? The person wielding all the power. Bill Clinton, who I voted for- twice.

I so agree with this right here! I'm not going to vote for someone just becuase they're a woman, their religion or their race, but because they actually qualify to be president and care about this country and its people.

There can hardly be a person on earth who doesn't know about this and has formed an opinion on all parties involved. I doubt this will be a significant issue. If she runs.

I'm by no means not even a little bit of a Hilary supporter. I do think it would be foolish for anyone to take in account their level of support or let their support of lack there of be determined on something that happen almost decades ago when Hilary her self was not even the one in office.

not being a supporter of Hilary, not even liking her at all i still have to admit allot of things change in 20 years including people. If i was even considering looking more into her to see if she were someone i might support or not I would most likely over look and dismiss events almost 2 decades old and want to know who she is and about now, today, and the past few years of her service as Secretary of state more than anything else.

I also question Monica. Almost 2 decades later she has gone from starting out as a young women to the grown women that she now is and I'm quite sure like all of us has regrets of bad judgment and choices we made when we were young, starting out, and especially anyone hoping to make a name for them self depending on their future plans and goals.

I don't feel she was victim, she certainly was not raped or forced. I can agree that she may have been taken advantage of by Bill in her young imature mind in which she quite possibly may have hoped Bill would give her the head start she needed/wanted or she simply just could have been star struck, infatuated, and flattered that the president of the USA especially one of his swave and good looks took an interest in her.

taken emotionally advantage of then thrown under the bus to look like a fool or not which she is not the first young girl she was still still more than willing and it's now in her more mature adult years that she all of a sudden needs to being it to light.

I smell a book deal or some other monetary agenda.

I think it's smart of Clinton to have this out in the open now. The corruptions of the Clinton in their questionable financial deal (See the NY Times article) failures in foreign affairs, and even Monica,.Get it out now then in '16 it becomes, "Oh this is old news."

 Man, women, black or white, I don't care. I unrealistically would love for another Ronald Reagan but i think those days and possibilities are long gone.

I want someone who is qualified and has the capabilitility to put us in a direction of trying to reverse damage that has been done, all of what is repairable. I also understand so much damage has done and it didn't happen over nigh and even the best of the best can't be expected to reverse it or change it over night probably not even in one term but if someone could get us on the a path in the right direction it is a start.

The problem is with as far down as this country has spiralled the next president to come even if he is the best and can get us on a path in the right direction people are going to blame him and hold him accountable for not having a magic trick quick fix. When that happens then we usually end up going back to what started this mess in the first place and it's a never ending cycle once things get to the point they have gotten to instead of people having patience and allowing time needed to fix and or recover.

Man, women, black, white, I don't care. I'm with you, it would be intersting to see the first women president but it can't just be any women because it would be interesting it has to be not just the right women but the right person.

I think allot of what happened with Obama was that so many people were eager to see a huge step such as a first black president being voted in. Especially those of the black community who saw it as a huge accomplishment after all the hurtles they had to jump through out American history. People who had never even cared about voting before made sure they voted then for him. Allot of them didn't vote for him, for who he was, many didn't even really know who he was. They (black and whites) voted for him wanting to wittiness the history of the first black president being elected.

I think that could possibly happen with people wanting to witness the first women president in American history.

I hope enough people learned from voting for Obama that these are not the right reasons to vote for someone.
