Bill Clinton has never owned his egregious misbehavior with women. He is a symbol of our culture of denial, in which charisma, money, and power mean that you can take advantage of anyone less powerful.
To be the most powerful man in the most powerful country and to take advantage of a 22-year-old woman working for you and then to smarmily split hairs over what type of sexual contact took place…
A few years back I read all of the sexual assault accounts against him through the years, and at least one seemed absolutely credible.
That’s the problem with rape, even if physical evidence is immediately collected, it boils down to one person’s word against another.
Bill Clinton’s word became meaningless to me. Any politician who has him endorse them, I really question their integrity.
Bill Clinton also pooh-poohs that the Glass-Steagall Act disappeared on his watch. The legislation that kept investment banking and commercial banking separate was the lesson learned from The Great Depression and lasted from 1933 to 1999. Economics is tricky, and it is difficult to assess the magnitude of the repeal of Glass-Steagall.
I am so sick of politicians who are out of touch. Those with integrity still exist. Senator Elizabeth Warren for one who co-authored The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle Class Parents are Going Broke.
