On a cold night in October 2005, my husband and I came to a bistro in London for a quiet dinner. This place is small, just a small store on a busy Kensington Street with several tables. We have all this, except for a young woman wearing a floral floral dress on two tables and picking her dinner on a thick textbook.
Shortly after we sat down, my husband and I closed our eyes and said silently (we sat too tight, not even heard a whisper), “That is Monica Lewinsky.”
His gaze shot at the table, she was squatting on the book, and the long bangs covered her face to a large extent. He does not believe it. Why is she here? Read a textbook? It looks so tired and lonely… oh??
Soon after we got the food, the young woman gathered her things and left. Since this was a world before a smartphone, I had to wait until I returned to the hotel to give to Google Monica Lewinsky and confirmed that she actually lives in London and is studying at the London School of Economics. small world.
Monica Lewinsky and I are the same age. In 1995 we were all interns in Washington – she was at the White House and I was on Capitol Hill. Although my months in the District of Columbia are just a footnote to my life story, Monica will be her definition.
When the news of her affair with President Clinton broke out for the first time, I looked at it from a big political perspective. I am very disgusted with both of them. As he became a traitor, he smashed the oval office with such behavior and became the kind of girl who was mixed with the married man. I mean, we all know that he is married, Monica.
As a conservative, this just further confirms what I consider to be the inferior morality of the political left. Of course, the clown president is a liar. Of course, his staff is full of women who will do this kind of thing. of course.
But in the few minutes of the London restaurant ten years later, Monica Lewinsky became the person in my heart again. She looks like someone who might be friends when I was in college. She studied at a famous school. She is dressed like a ubiquitous person. Absolutely not looking for attention.
In my opinion, she may seek asylum there to avoid the ruthless media attention in the United States making life impossible. She is basically in exile. When I think about it, it hurts my heart.
I don’t want to minimize the severity of her unethical choices. This is crazy. But when I was in college and in my 20s, many friends made some rough choices. I can’t think of one of them who paid such a high price. Bill Clinton certainly did not. He left the office, began to write books, and spent a lot of money supporting his political wife – the one who had somehow failed to murder him in Monica Lewinsky’s sleep.
