This is all garbage. Clinton lied to me in my living room. He said he didn't have sex with that woman, then 9 months later he admitted it. When I heard that I turned to my wife and said "We have to get him out of office". If Clinton had told us to mind our own business I might have understood, but no President lies to me in my living room. Bush never lied, he led. And if you think he lied, then tell me the exact quote that was the lie, or shut up!

Fifteen years ago, after special prosecutor Ken Starr questioned President Bill Clinton about his involvement with Monica Lewinsky, Starr—overcome with a “sense of gloom”—shambled into his Virginia home, collapsed into bed, and asked himself, “How could a sensible and sane government come to this?”

That’s the story scholar Ken Gormley tells in The Death of American Virtue: His 2010 book is the most thorough history of the crisis that escalated on Jan. 26, 1998, when Clinton claimed in a nationally televised White House news conference, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

As the 15th...
