Given the Pre9/11 mentality at the time, the Clinton Impeachment scandal does seem quaint. However if the "blue dress" was not discovered, President Bill Clinton would have stonewalled the investigation.
"Bush Lied, People Died" was chanted on the streets during the Bush Administration. However people forget that when Clinton lied, people did die. People forget when Clinton bombed Osama Bin Laden's aspirin factory on the day the Monica Lewinsky gave testimony. Let us not forget in December of 1998, President Clinton ordered the bombing of Iraq on the day that the House of Representatives were prepared to vote on the Articles of Impeachment.
So much of modern day trust of Federal Government can be traced to this man's arrogant behavior during his presidency.
