Bill Clinton should be very glad he’s not running for anything now, because his book promotion interview with Craig Melvin that aired Monday on NBC’s “Today Show” would have derailed his campaign as badly as the CBS interview where Roger Mudd asked Ted Kennedy why he wanted to be President and Ted couldn’t come up with a coherent answer. At least Ted didn’t also blurt out that he was the real victim of the Chappaquiddick tragedy, no matter much he might have believed it. But Bill Clinton actually did seem to suggest that he was the real victim of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Even in the MeToo era, he is still defiant in not only refusing to apologize to Ms Lewinsky but getting angry at the suggestion that he even should. No wonder he got along so well with Harvey Weinstein. Astoundingly, he also seems to believe that the media were biased against him. As an example of that awful anti-Clinton media bias, Joe Concha in The Hill newspaper pulled up this quote from 1998, in a Tina Brown New Yorker article seeking to quell the rising scandal:

“Now see your President, tall and absurdly debonair, as he dances with a radiant blonde, his wife…Amid the clichés about his charm, his glamour is undersung…Forget the dog-in-the-manger, down-in-the-mouth neo-puritanism of the op-ed tumbrel drivers, and see him instead as his guests do: a man in a dinner jacket with more heat than any star in the room."



Gee, I’ll bet President Trump wishes he could suffer vicious media bias like that.

And here’s another reminder of an era when the media went out of their way to run interference for the guy in the White House, no matter what he was accused of. It’s also a reminder that in his self-serving defensiveness, Bill Clinton didn’t even scratch the surface of everything he’s been accused of.

    One day "Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father" and the Clintons will be no exception. They had better repent before that day and receive grace and pardon because otherwise, it won't be a pleasant experience. We are are in a mess without the grace of God.

    I wish the Clintons would stop thinking they are in any way relevant. I wouldn't have voted for Mrs. Clinton anyway but her complicity in her husband's bad behavior was sickening. She portrayed herself as a champion of women. WHEN? When she destroyed that 12 year old girl and later laughed about it? Also I have to say, Mr. Clinton doesn't seem to have aged well.

    And may I say Governor, that you have restored my faith on your home state. :)

    BUT -- why was the issue even brought up? This was a book tour, and the whole conversation obviously left James Patterson squirming in his seat. The venue was totally inappropriate. James Patterson lends his name and his expertise as a best-selling author to new writers. The book tour is to sell the book, not talk about politically charged issues or past sins (it WAS 20 years ago, right?) If all they could think to ask Clinton was "Monica" questions, perhaps they should have asked Patterson about the book and let Bill sit there and listen to what Patterson had to say. Totally inappropriate question for the actual purpose of the interview. Give up on this, people! Whether or not he apologized to her is irrelevant. I believe even Monica has moved on. It's not really our business.
