You just can't make this stuff up. Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak tonight at the DNC in Charlotte, but who will give the benediction when the night ends? Monica Lewinsky's former rabbi of course. From ABC:

Rabbi David Wolpe of Los Angeles’ Sinai Temple, where Monica Lewinsky and her family were congregation members for decades and where Lewinsky attended religious school, is scheduled to deliver the benediction at the Democratic National Convention tonight — not long after Bill Clinton speaks.

Not only was Wolpe the Lewinsky family’s rabbi, he also sharply condemned President Clinton at the time his sexual relationship with Lewinsky, then a 24-year-old White House intern, was dominating national headlines.

It's like they just don't care....or something.
