Monica Lewinsky’s reappearance is unlikely to complicate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election
When Lewinsky story started, it became like a limitless waterfall on the head of President Bill Clinton. Clinton completed his tenure. He didn’t sink. A point Clinton himself could use to legitimize his own candidacy, if he were Hillary.
The fear of “How Monica Lewinsky Could Complicate Hillary Clinton’s Likely 2016 Bid,” by an article in The Wall Street Journal of October 22, 2014, doesn’t arise.
When the blogger says “Mrs. Clinton, down 15 points from the end of her tenure at State. As of last month, only 14% of Republicans viewed her favorably compared with 72% of Democrats,” it fails to reconcile that president’s Clinton approval rating is yet to vanish.
In 1998, as the Lewinsky saga unfolded, Clinton's job approval went up, by 10 percent.
A newspaper article reveals the leaning of the writer or editorial, where the polity is driven by ideology. Same for aspirants or candidates. Hillary’s ideology is not Lewinsky.
I see Hillary as viable and durable. Any issue not jeopardizing to American interest during her service to the country, cannot complicate her bid for the presidency. And Lewinsky is not Hillary’s ideology.
