Kathleen Parker’s Nov. 7 column is poorly written, poorly researched and inaccurate. She says Bill Clinton’s sexual misbehavior while he was in office left a legacy of “simmering rage” that, after being pent up for 25 years, has resulted in “eruptions of sexual harassment claims.”

She further states that Clinton’s was the first “two-fer” presidency, “… with a first lady who championed women’s rights” as well. Parker also declares that President “Clinton was the first, as far as we know, to have a sexual relationship with an intern.”

None of those things are true. I refer Parker to first ladies Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan as examples of “two-fers,” and to Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd, Kay Summersby and Mimi Alford, a 19-year-old intern during the Kennedy administration, as examples of women in “sexual relationships” with a POTUS.

Bill Clinton is absolutely responsible for his own behavior, and certainly not responsible for others’ behavior, including presidents past, present or future.
