He should not be asked about his sexual relationships with anyone, it's his business. At least IMO.

The thing is, this guy is plugging a book, so he better get used to answering those questions. I think that it was nobodys business while he was in office. Now he's trying to make some coin, so it's open season.
Can't justify bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior. He got busted and lied. It's disturbing because you instantly wonder how many other times he earnestly looked into the camera and lied about more important things.
I think this is an odd statement. Nobody is asking Bush is he's having good relations with Laura. I don't think sexuality should necessarily be on the docket just because you're a public servant. And it we're gonna lay Clinton bare (pun intended) for what he did, I think it's high time the "Sex life of the presidents" book was written. Bush senior has skated for years without being heaviy pressed about that close secretary of his. Kennedy clearly falls in there. It's one thing to require leaders to meet a certain standard...it's another to imply that Bill is an exception to the rule. I think he's the rule. I think people in power get away with dicey behavior regularly. Not that it's good...but it wasn't impeachable before him.
I've always thought that Laura was the best thing going for Dubya. I've been hearing lately about little things regarding her.. like she's a smoker - but will never let any camera catch her at it. (It's a wonder she's not smokin' crack bein' married to him. You know she reads!)
This I have never heard of, though I'm not saying your wrong. But I find it hard to believe a governor(not an international office, nor a federal position) would have anything to do with Iran/Contra. I'll be looking it up.
As the governor of Arkansas during that time period, he was dealing with all those operatives from the other side of the aisle.
