Who’s To Blame?

Jane Eisner’s comments on Monica Lewinsky (“Mulling Over Monica,” October 5) and her new book made me lose my breakfast. Coming off of the Yom Kippur fast, I did not need the loss of its nutritional value. In the contest between whose morality was lower, Clinton’s or Lewinsky’s, I would expect more from a married man, Rhodes scholar and president of the United States than from a 20-something White House intern. How Clinton, a serial adulterer if ever there was one, gets a pass from the left in general, and women in particular is beyond my comprehension. If he were a public company CEO, the sexual harassment suit would have been filed in milliseconds.
