Clinton on Lewinsky

Political Wire’s Quote of the Day:

“I hope that she will not allow her whole life to be defined by her Andy Warhol-like 15 minutes of fame.”

— Bill Clinton on “his former paramour” Monica Lewinsky.

I always presumed Warhol was gay but didn’t realize he blew a president.

And you have to love the sense of humor of the New York Daily News headline writers: “He hopes Monica’s life isn’t stained by scandal.”

    Loved Clinton’s remark on Oprah when asked if he gave advice to Chelsa about men,he said no he tried to stay out of Chelsa’s Affairs> he dosen’t even know what he is saying half the time and that after his infamous”it depends on what is is comment” everything he says is analyzed and parsed for double and or triple meanings. He absolutely missed his calling ,surely he is perfect for the part of Golum”I love my master,I hate my master”,even Bill can’t figure out who he is half the time.
