President Clinton is a skirt chaser and probably has been since puberty. His wife of several decades, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was certainly aware of her husband's serial betrayals of her. For several months between November 1995 and March 1997, President Clinton had an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. Apparently it involved only fellatio and not intercourse. Clinton, as was his wont, denied it, but there are Democrats
who say that no one believed him
, most notably his long suffering wife, Hillary. Despite her near moral certainty that her husband had indeed had sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky, Hillary went on the Today show and, after admitting that if the allegations regarding Lewinsky were true, it would be bad for Bill
and his party, she denied
that her husband had had sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky. Worse, she made up, out of whole cloth, the existence of what she called "a vast right-wing conspiracy" out to get her husband, who were making up these "false" allegations which in fact were true and which, I believe, she knew were true at the time she first used the term.
Hillary Clinton's claim was absurd on its face. We Right-wingers were opposed to President Clinton for our own uncoordinated reasons and we were opposing Clinton right out there in the open. 'Vast' and 'conspiracy' were laughably wrong. No one was making up that Clinton had sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.
And the term became, at least among the Republicans, both a badge of honor and the butt of jokes made at Hillary's expense. Vast right-wing conspiracy became a joke on its fabricator, as was appropriate.
So it was very interesting what President Clinton said recently on TV
when asked whether the vast right wing conspiracy still existed:
You bet. Sure it is. It's not as strong as it was because America has changed demographically. But it's as virulent as it was....their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail.
La plus ça change...
