Quotes

Betsy Wright: Bill Clinton had women falling all over him. It was one of the things that drove me crazy about working for him. Was it was just - there is something so horrible about a politician having groupies kiss their feet constantly. It, it doesn't keep them humble it does the opposite, and it happens to anyone who has political power. And Bill was thought to be attractive by a lot of women and there were just women throwing themselves at him constantly.

Finally, the truth
7 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

After seeing this movie I feel even more certain that we should change the

constitution to allow Presidents to serve more than 2 terms. Clinton was the greatest President in my lifetime and I am Embarrassed for our country with

the recent election of Dubya. How could 58 million people be so DUMB! We

are hated and despised throughout the world. Our economy is in the tank and

over 1000 of our finest have died in an illegitimate war. When Clinton lied, no one died! His lie was about a personal failing. He was pushed into the

impeachment thing by right-wing zealots. If those idiots had been doing their job and not salivating over a sex scandal maybe the President could have

concentrated on more important things. I blame the right-wing congressmen

and Senators for the build up to 9/11.
