Bill Clinton : Monica Lewinsky

THE FROLIC: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you survived “Monicagate” and know what led to the impeachment of an American president. So let’s hit the high notes, shall we? President Bill Clinton vehemently denied having sexual relations with White House intern Monica Lewinsky after Internet gossip column Drudge Report broke the scandal online. A bold-faced denial under oath – backed by taped conversations of the alleged affair – ended in an impeachment trial and obstruction of justice and perjury charges. Clinton dodged the bullet and remained in office, leaving with the highest approval rating of any president since World War II.

THE FALLOUT: In the months after the dust settled, Lewinsky made sure to milk her fleeting fame for all its worth, making the morning show rounds, helping pen her side of the Clinton affair, appearing in a Saturday Night Live skit, and shedding weight for Jenny Craig. After an unsuccessful stint as a handbag designer, Lewinsky fled to London where she pursued a master’s degree in social psychology. As for Bill, I think he’s doing all right.
