Clinton Paper




As Americans we feel we have the right to know everything about everyone. Yet, when it
comes to our own personal lives, we don't want people sticking their noses in our
business. All over the United States of America you can turn on the television and see
some talk show about "Who's the babies Daddy," or something that has to do with some
obscene incident that no one would ever want to admit to have happening. As people we
thrive off of other people's bliss and misery. It is a trait that every person possesses;
we all want to hear about other lives. Sometimes this trait can cause problems, for
example, when former president Bill Clinton was questioned on incidents involving Monica
Lewinsky. Why do we allow our country to make other people's issues our own?

Clinton was a victim to our countries belief of thinking that it is there "RIGHT" to know
about the president's personal life. Although Clinton originally lied to our country about
having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky, the manner that he was questioned in was
wrong. The press and media put him in an uncomfortable situation. Clinton knowing that
what he had been doing was wrong, he hadn't told his wife or family, and wasn't ready to
admit to cheating on his wife in front of the nation. Being as the embarrassment was too
much to handle. Clinton went many months telling lies on the happening with Lewinsky.
Finally on August 7, 1998 Clinton came out before the Office of Independent Counsel and a
grand jury and gave his presidential address from the Map Room of the White House. Clinton
stated that he had misled people into believing he did not have sexual relations. He came
out and told the world that he did in fact have these

relations with Lewinsky. The questions were not all answered and there was still more that
the American public wanted to know.


Although Clinton told the truth about Lewinsky, there were many whispers going around
about drug usage in the Oval Office. Jack Christy of the USA Radio Network had an
exclusive interview with Clinton and there were many questions asked that were not
answered and for good reason. When Clinton was asked about the drug issue he was
"surprised and hostile" when asked about "a matter that was not public." Bill Clinton.
There were many questions involving Lewinsky bringing drugs into the Oval Office. At one
point in his speech to the people, he states,

"As you know, in a deposition in January, I was asked questions about my relationship with
Monica Lewinsky. While my answers were legally accurate, I did not volunteer information."
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/lewinsky_address/fallout.html With Clinton not volunteering
information he did not address certain questions when asked about whether or not he or his
friends altered the testimony of Lewinsky. At this point, it is difficult to believe and
stand behind Clinton and understand that people make mistakes in life, even the president.

Clinton had many things to worry about, he didn't want to lie to himself his family or his
country, but at the same time he was embarrassed about what he had done. In fact, he
states that "The independent counsel investigation moved on to my staff and friends, then
into my private life and now the investigation itself is under investigation." "This has
gone on too long, cost too much and hurt too many innocent people." Bill Clinton. You can
really tell that he feels sorry for the actions that he took in the situation, but he
doesn't want it to affect anyone but him. One would have to give him respect for telling
the truth and not wanting to bring others down with him. Clinton makes it a point that he
is only concerned with getting his relationship back on track with his family and trying
to make things right. Which at that point is really the only thing he should be worried
about, because there were too many people against him and not enough people with him. The
only thing he could do was try to make the people that loved and believe in him see that
he was remorseful and as a husband and father didn't agree with the decisions he made with
Monica Lewinsky.

Most people didn't think about the fact that it takes two to tango and Monica was also a
main person in this. Lewinsky admitted to throwing herself at him. As a woman having the
power of seduction, she used that to get Clinton to do what he did. Knowing that she had
control over his actions, she continued seeing him. She was always in the shadows of
Clinton, in pictures you can see her in the background or hustled in a crowd of people
standing behind him or giving him a hug. She also talked about smuggling drugs into the

Maybe when television was first introduced, that is all that it was. That certainly is not the case today. It tells us what to buy, what to wear, how to act, even how to think. In other words, people are relying too much on television as a source of information. There are very few television stations that are black oriented. This hurts blacks because
