Ten years ago today ...

... the first news in what became known as "the Monica Lewinsky scandal" came out, when Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report broke the word that Newsweek was sitting on a story about a sexual affair between President Bill Clinton and a 23-year old White House intern.

Those were very crazy days. Can't believe it's been ten years already. I still remember watching Clinton on live television wagging his finger at everyone and claiming that "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky!"

I have a friend who teaches history, who predicted all the way back in 1992 that Bill Clinton would be the first in a long series of presidencies that lacked honor and ability and real sense of duty. When the Lewinsky scandal came out, I couldn't help but think back to what he said. And now ten years later, in the closing months of an even worse President and with not much better being rigged to succeed him, I have to wonder if this office will ever have decency and aptitude again in it anytime soon... if at all.
